Abstract

The relative lack of competitive elections across the US has been the cause of growing concern in recent years. But what might be some of the potential policy and legal consequences associated with more competitive elections? In new research, Bryan M. Black and Laine P. Shay find that states with more competitive legislative elections are more likely to have their state’s laws invalidated by the US Supreme Court than states with less competitive elections.
