Another hot topic since the famous legal and political dispute of the 2000 Gore v. Bush presidential campaign have been election laws. Each state has its own regulatory mechanism for conducting elections, validating ballots, and ensuring that those who wish to vote are given the rights promised to them under the Constitution. Unfortunately, with each state utilizing a separate set of rules, disputes as occurred after the 2000 presidential election (and several that followed) are sure to occur. Thus, this has become a surprisingly robust area of the law over the last few years, with numerous safeguards and other measures put in place to protect against similar questions of election results, sometimes with mixed results.
