Summary:The first part of this work concerns the rules for "non-precinct voting"-the casting of ballots by means other than the traditional polling-place on Election Day. The principles of Part I apply both to voting for the purpose of electing public officials, and to voting to determine ballot initiatives, referenda, and other measures placed before the electorate, or to determine whether to recall a public official. The second part concerns general principles for the resolution of disputed elections and is applicable to both presidential and nonpresidential elections. Part II provides principles applicable to administrative and judicial processes that concern the counting of ballots after they have been cast in elections remaining "too close to call." The third part concerns presidential election disputes specifically and establishes procedures to resolve a disputed presidential election within the narrow time constraints established by Congress. The procedures prescribed in Part III address the unique challenges that exist when a presidential election remains unsettled well after the polls have closed and one or both candidates claim victory.
Each restatement or principles topic is further updated by an annual gathering of short synopses of judicial rulings or decisions in which the court has explicitly employed the restatement or principles in its decisionmaking. Whether followed, followed in part, criticized, or rejected, the restatements and principles are widely cited, ignored at peril. These annual compilations of case annotations are useful in determining the scope and value of Restatement and Principles formulations.
