Election Law @ Moritz Initiates Media Teleconferences to Discuss Latest Developments in 2006 Election Law Issues
First teleconference scheduled for September 12
September 11, 2006
Beginning on September 12, 2006, the Election Law @ Moritz program at The Ohio State University will kick off weekly teleconferences to provide up-to-date analysis of critical legal developments occurring throughout this year's midterm election cycle.
With gubernatorial races in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin touted as bellwethers of the 2008 presidential election, as well as key Senate and House races that could affect the control of Congress, the team will provide reliable, independent expertise on election administration issues in those key states (including voter identification requirements, registration list management, voting technology, and recounts) while also covering election-related legal developments across the United States.
The Election Law @ Moritz team, led by Director Edward B. "Ned" Foley and Associate Director Daniel P. Tokaji, will comment on particular topics of critical importance for the election as well as summaries of legal developments occurring during the previous week or likely to unfold in the weeks ahead. Following that brief input, the team will answer reporters' questions. In addition, the Election Law at Moritz web site will include summaries and commentaries as well as links to relevant documents.
In addition to professors Foley and Tokaji, Election Law @ Moritz Senior Fellows, Professor Steven F. Huefner, Professor Donald B. Tobin, and Professor Terri L. Enns will also participate in the teleconferences.
The weekly teleconference will be held at 2 p.m. ET every Tuesday beginning Sept. 12. Members of the media may join the teleconference by calling 1-800-261-9609. The audio file from each teleconference will be posted on the Election Law @ Moritz web site following each teleconference.
The teleconferences will also be available via podcast. If you wish to subscribe to the podcast, configure your podcasting client accordingly and have it point to:
