Hilton UF Conference Center

The topic of the 13th Annual Richard E. Nelson Symposium—state and local elections—is a vital concern to lawyers (in many important fields) and laypeople alike. The stellar group of national and state experts participating in the Nelson Symposium will explore the status of the Voting Rights Act after the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Shelby County v. Holder; the legality and wisdom of voter ID laws, felon disenfranchisement, and voter roll purges; the phenomenon of ballot-box zoning; and campaign disclosure for ballot measures. Since the 2000 presidential election, the Sunshine State has been closely identified with these and other controversial election topics, so the presentations and discussions during the Nelson Symposium promise to provide fodder for continuing debates over current and future controversies.
