Legal Resources for the Election
Election Day is now less than a month away. If you are interested in knowing more about election law for this election, or in the U.S. in general there are some good options available to you.
First of all there are several good print resources. On display in our hall display case at the moment is a book called America Votes! by Benjamin Griffith. We also have a subscription to the Election Law Journal.
While you are online you might want to check out Westlaw’s new tab on election law. Or maybe poke around the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration’s website on election law, which has a huge collection of materials on past and present elections, and on the process in general. If you are interested in local elections, you might check out the Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations website for information about candidates, and recorded debates.
Finally, remember that today is the last day you can register to vote. And the first day of early voting! If you want to make sure that you are registered to vote in Indiana, you can go here. If you are not, you download a registration form here, and then either mail it (it must be postmarked today) or you can bring it to the Justice Building down town before four o’clock today. Happy voting!
