CHOICE Review

Hasen (Univ. of California, Irvine School of Law) has written extensively on US elections and election law, including The Supreme Court and Election Law (CH, May'04, 41-5567) and the textbook Election Law: Cases and Materials with Daniel Hays Lowenstein and Daniel P. Tokaji. Hasen begins by reviewing the electoral "perfect storm" of the 2000 presidential election. Rather than things getting better (as was the intent behind the Help America Vote Act), they have deteriorated. Hasan contends that the increased politicization of election procedures, the explosion in election law litigation, and the Internet have created the potential for a more serious crisis when the next "Florida" occurs. While offering some remedies, Hasen is not particularly optimistic about their adoption. A cautionary tale for those concerned about the future of US elections. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. J. F. Kraus Wagner College
