After the People Vote : Guide to the Electoral College - 3rd edition

After the People Vote : Guide to the Electoral College (ISBN10: 0844742023; ISBN13: 9780844742021)
ISBN13: 978-0844742021
ISBN10: 0844742023

Summary: The extraordinary presidential election contest in 2000 raised new issues about the electoral process. In the third edition of After the People Vote: A Guide to the Electoral College, leading constitutional, political, and legal scholars use examples from that controversial election and other disputed elections to explain how the electoral college works.

The new edition of this popular guide provides a short history of contested elections, including a fres
h essay on the 2000 election. It features all-new essays arguing for and against the electoral college, as well as appendixes that are updated and expanded to include electoral college and popular vote totals from past presidential elections. An added section concentrates on the period between Election Day in November and the casting of votes by electors in December. After the People Vote is the only book of its kind that is keyed to the specific dates between Election Day and the inauguration, which allows the reader to focus on the key procedural issues at each juncture of the election.

After the People Vote is a handbook for students, scholars, journalists, policymakers, political scientists, lawyers, and general readers interested in understanding the workings of the electoral college and other post-Election Day election processes. It explains:
  • how disputed presidential elections are resolved
  • why we have an electoral college
  • how electors are selected and bound
  • what the constitutional provisions are for selecting a president
  • what the statutory provisions are for selecting a president
  • how consistent state recount procedures are
  • why it is important for states to certify their election results by a date before the electors cast their votes
  • what the presidential succession process is
  • what the interactions of the Constitution, federal, and state statutes are and
  • what the party and parliamentary rules are.
