For Presidential, Congressional and state elections, nothing is more important than ensuring your candidate is on the ballot. Voting must be done fairly and clearly, and any recounts or complaints over voting rights must be vigorously perused or defended.
Arent Fox has experience in the largest recount matter in recent history: Bush v. Gore. Arent Fox Partner Thor Hearne successfully litigated various key and contentious issues in that election contest and can accomplish the same in any other state across the United States.
Ballot access, the petition process, and election-day activities have also proven to be crucial for successful candidate committees. Contesting signatures, voter-suppression allegations, ballot design and the counting process must be closely monitored for legal compliance. That’s why Arent Fox creates “in-state war rooms” on election day to oversee the numerous election activities across a state and provide 24 hour litigation support for candidate committees.
