Election Law 2020 Edition

Complete guide about Illinois election law.

Election lawyers in Illinois, for better or worse, have long been among the busiest in the country. Illinois’ complex ballot access rules, together with the state’s unique political climate, make the work of election attorneys quite important to the governing process. This handbook is an invaluable resource to practitioners and candidates across the state, as it provides a handy source for a good deal of legal authority that is otherwise unpublished.
