This short essay addresses severability in recent U.S. Supreme Court cases about election law: Shelby Co. v. Holder, Citizens United v. FEC and Arizona Free Enter. Club's Freedom Club PAC v. Bennett. The glass is actually half full because the high court tends to leave most of the laws they are reviewing intact.
