Just Vote '08 is an Advancement Project Initiative

Voter Protection Nutshells:

These publications are part of a series intended to distill complex election law for lawyers, advocates, voter registration campaigns and "Get Out the Vote" campaigns. They combine state election law with state regulations, rules, attorney general opinions and other election materials to provide a comprehensive interpretation of the law and practices that impact elections. While these publications do not cover every provision of state election law, they highlight those provisions, which, in our experience, have most impacted the voting rights of minority voters.

Advancement Project publishes these nutshells with local law firms and lawyers as part of our "Voter Protection Program" project. We encourage our partners to use these legal guides in support of local, on the ground voter protection efforts in advance of Election Day.[20]

The following interpretation of Louisiana Election Law contains only a small portion of the law that may be relevant to voter registration campaigns and advocates attempting to ensure that citizens may register, cast their ballots and have them counted.

The following interpretation of Nevada Election Law contains only a small portion of the law that may be relevant to voter registration campaigns and advocates attempting to ensure that citizens may register, cast their ballots and have them counted.
