On March 15, 2013, the Election Law Society hosted the first-ever Friends of the Election Law Society Reception at Wiley Rein in Washington, DC. Our success as an organization is mainly due to the unwavering support of our large network of ELS alumni and supporters. As such, we strive maintain connections with our friends in the election law community.
