Event Date



Election litigation in state courts has been increasing across the country, as parties challenge voting restrictions, gerrymandered districts and longstanding practices of election administration.

Join the Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy and the State Democracy Research Initiative at the University of Wisconsin Law School for a conversation with Floersheimer Co-Director Professor Deborah Pearlstein and election experts Professor Richard H. Pildes (NYU School of Law), Deputy Solicitor General Judith Vale (Office of the New York State Attorney General), Professor Carolyn Shapiro (Chicago-Kent College of Law) and Ethan Herenstein (Counsel for Brennan Center’s Democracy Program) to discuss the value and consequences of state court involvement and what it means for future federal elections.
