The extraordinary presidential election contest in 2000 raised new issues about the electoral process. In the third edition of After the People Vote: A Guide to the Electoral College, leading constitutional, political, and legal scholars use examples from that controversial election and other disputed elections to explain how the electoral college works. The new edition of this popular guide provides a short history of contested elections, including a fresh essay on the 2000 election. It features all-new essays arguing for and against the electoral college, as well as appendixes that are updated and expanded to include electoral college and popular vote totals from past presidential elections. An added section concentrates on the period between Election Day in November and the casting of votes by electors in December. After the People Vote is the only book of its kind that is keyed to the specific dates between Election Day and the inauguration, which allows the reader to focus on the key procedural issues at each juncture of the election.
