North Carolina's ongoing battles over ballot access are a window into the current malaise that plagues America's electoral system. Amid the debates about vote fraud and vote suppression, about race and politics, about abuse and integrity, lie some deeper questions about how the U.S. has structured its democracy. The Supreme Court decisions on Alabama's Shelby County and on Arizona's voter registration provide some interesting new clues to the complicated interrelation between law, the Constitution, race and politics. Samuel Issacharoff, the Reiss Professor of Constitutional Law at New York University School of Law, will address the difficult intersection of these fraught areas of American law and politics when he delivers Duke Law's annual Currie Lecture. His wide-ranging research deals with issues in civil procedure, law and economics, constitutional law (particularly with regard to voting rights and electoral systems), and employment law.For more information, contact Sandie MacLachlan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
