Voting Rights and Election Law

Topics include the right to vote; First Amendment rights of candidates, voters, political speakers, and parties; the Voting Rights Act's and the Constitution's constraints on the drawing of district lines; and the place of money in the electoral process.


Federal agency regulations and other official agency notices are originally published, 5 days a week, in the Federal Register. The regulations are then codified in the Code of Federal Regulations where they are listed by agency. Both the Federal Register and the CFR are available free from the federal government and from publishers like Lexis and Westlaw.  See also FDsys, the next generation of Government information online.
