This Address briefly reexamines the relationship between election law and constitutional law. For those unfamiliar with the history of this relationship, 44 Indiana Law Review 7 (2010)allow me to offer a tongue-in-cheek sketch. Election law is a young field. It was not formally declared its own field of study until 1999, though its roots date back earlier. While there were a handful of scholars writing systematically about the subject before 1990, the field came into its own during the early 1990s as a group of dynamic young scholars entered the field and made a name for themselves.
