"Ballot Battles: A History of Disputed Elections in the U.S." (Encore Presentation)

BALLOT-BOX-Photo.jpg
Aired on Friday, June 24th.

(Note: This show originally aired back in January.) Our guest on ST is Edward B. Foley, the Ebersold Chair in Law and Director of Election Law at the Ohio State University School of Law. Professor Foley tells us about his new book, "Ballot Battles: A History of Disputed Elections in the U.S." As was noted of this title by Tamara Keith, a correspondent for NPR News: "It's hard not to feel outrage and a little dread reading Edward Foley's retelling of ballot battles dating back to the nation's founding. That's because, as Foley argues beautifully, American democracy lacks a fair, unbiased, non-partisan way to resolve contested elections. What will happen next time an election's outcome is in limbo? 'Ballot Battles' makes a compelling argument that it could well be messy." You can learn more about this book -- and can hear a free, on-demand audio-stream of our chat with its author -- at this link.
