Election Law

At Robinson Gray, we represent clients involved in all facets of election disputes, ranging from defending incumbents in challenges brought by the losing candidates to representing election commissions involved in election protests. These election disputes have been handled at the local level all the way to successful resolution before the South Carolina Supreme Court.

Robinson Gray also represents clients in redistricting litigation, which includes assisting the government entity in drawing election districts and representation if the plans are challenged in court. In addition, Robinson Gray has represented clients in challenges brought alleging violations of the Voting Rights Act and of U.S constitutional provisions.

Federal and state laws often change frequently to ensure increased access to voting. Working through this maze of new requirements requires familiarity with the intricacies of these laws. Robinson Gray is well suited to advise persons involved in the election process.
