Election Law Journal 11:2, Symposium on Election Law in India, Now Available; Preview of 11:3

The new issue of Election Law Journal is out now.  It features a symposium on Election Law in India, the world’s largest democracy, guest co-edited by Robert Moog and David Gilmartin of North Carolina State University.  The symposium includes an article by Ellen Weintraub and Samuel Brown comparing campaign finance disclosure in India and the U.S.  The table of contents appears below.

This is our first issue devoted to another country’s election system, part of our effort to enhance the journal’s international coverage.  In that same vein, we’ve added Graeme Orr of the University of Queensland Law School as our International Editor, a new position for this issue.

Our next issue (11:3) will include articles by Donald Green, Melissa Michelson, Neil Malhotra, Andrew Healy, Allison Sovey Carnegie, and Ali Valenzuela; Bob Stein and Greg Vonnahme; Anthony Fowler, Conor Dowling, Ryan Enos, and Costas Panagopoulos; and Sarah Murray.  It also includes a paper on Florida’s recent early voting changes by Dan Smith and Michael Herron, and book reviews by Dan Ortiz and Zim Nwokora.
