Description

Brightly, Frederick C., compiler. A Collection of Leading Cases on the Law of Elections in the United States, with Notes and References to the Latest Authorities. Philadelphia: Kay & Brother, 1871.

Frederick Charles Brightly's (1812-1888) Collection of Leading Cases on the Law of Elections (1871) covers a range of sources from the several states and includes unreported cases. Moreover, the work highlights "what the Author sincerely believes to be the greatest vice in our political system," the delegation of power to make decisions in election law to an elected judiciary. Brightly voices his concerns about the independence of judges in decision-making, and incorporates those criticisms into his scholarship.
