Election Law
Nov 05, 2019 Season 2 Episode 86
Professors Michael Morley and Leslie Garfield Tenzer

In this episode, Prof. Michael Morley, Associate Professor of Law at Florida State University College of Law, explains the essentials of election law.  This episode is a must listen to for any student of election law and incredibly informative for those who just want to learn a little bit more about our electoral process, our electoral history and the meaning of Citizens United v. The Federal Election Commission.

Some key takeways are...

1. The right to vote is not absolute
2. If the burden on the right to vote is too onerous, the right is violated
3. Congress can legislate state and local elections under the enforcement clause.

About our guest...
