About the Election Law Society
William & Mary Election Law Society is the student run branch of the Election Law Program. ELS seeks to bring attention to the complex legal issues surrounding election law and encourage public participation and communication in every stage of the election process. We are a multi-partisan group that bridges student engagement and student involvement. Each year we bring a host of speakers to the law school, including our yearly symposium, to engage with the W&M community. In addition, ELS runs State of Elections, a student run blog that focuses on how Americans vote in every state-and the challenges they may face in the process. Students also work in tandem with the Election Law Program on the ebenchbook project–a nonpartisan resource which provides election codes, annotations, and explanations by in-state experts to assist in election litigation. ELS continues to cultivate student interest and involvement in election law, growing in tandem with this every expanding and vital field.
