Talking the Vote: Facilitating Disputed Election Processes through ADR
February 18, 2011 | Ohio Union Round Room
Although Bush v. Gore and, more recently, Coleman v. Franken, made apparent the potential for election disputes—as well as the problems associated with their resolution—procedures for unraveling electoral disagreements remain uncertain and time-consuming at both the state and federal levels.
This year's day-long conference will begin with an examination of the procedures currently used for resolving electoral disputes, as well as the goals which those procedures seek to achieve. The remainder of the day will be spent in discussion of various methods of alternative dispute resolution, the possibility of their help in overcoming the problems associated with litigation of electoral disputes, and the feasibility of their use.
The conference will be followed by a paper symposium issue of the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution. For further information, please contact symposium editors Emily Beach at firstname.lastname@example.org or Andrew Makoski at email@example.com.
