Genova Burns Associate Harrison C. Clewell, Esq. will participate on a panel entitled, "Election Law Update 2022: Elections – “The Times They Are A-Changin” for the New Jersey State Bar Association on October 18th.

About The Program

"For attorneys, campaigns are not just about winning an election at any cost. Your obligation and task as an attorney is to help ensure a fair, unchallengeable, and litigation free victory. It is not just about what you do, but when and how you do it, and importantly what you do not do.

Join this program to review everything you need to know about the interaction, representation, and protection of candidates, campaigns, and campaign attorneys. The experienced panel will pull the curtain back to examine the election process, and will show you what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and how to do it properly.

Whether inexperienced or having gone through the process many times, attendees will be sure to learn and take away tips, tricks, and proven methods of successful representation and involvement for local, county, and state elections and campaigns.

While legal topics are being covered there will be much practical advice for candidates, campaign managers, and elected officials."

Topics Include:

  • Political Parties and the ballot line: the current challenges - is the party to wither or win?
  • Voter Protection and Election Day activities for challenges
  • Paper ballots - casting, review, rejection, correction and challenges
  • Elections systems, casting ballots and electronic scanning
  • Election recounts, rechecks and contests
  • Referendums and public questions
