In recent years, election law has assumed a particularly prominent role in American political life. Election-related litigation has sharply increased during the past decade, and the winner of a number of high-profile elections have been determined following litigation, including, most prominently, the presidential election of 2000 and the gubernatorial election in Washington in 2004. This issue of the William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal is devoted to a consideration of various issues that arise out of the way in which we vote in the United States, with a particular focus on legal issues that arise out of the use of electronic voting technology. Because of the multi-disciplinary aspects of the question of how we vote, this symposium includes scholars from the fields of law, political science, and computer science.
