Expertise in Voting & Elections in the American States

Dr. Daniel A. Smith, President of ElectionSmith, Inc. specializes broadly in empirical research on voting and electoral processes in the American states.  For over 20 years, ElectionSmith has conducted research on the impact of laws affecting voting rights, redistricting, ballot measures, and campaign finance in the American states.  Among many other lawsuits, Dr. Smith’s expert reports and testimony in federal and state litigation have led to redistricting victories in Florida (on behalf of the League of Women Voters and Common Cause), the extension of voter registration in Florida (on behalf of the ACLU), the ability to cure Vote-by-Mail ballots in Florida (on behalf of the Democratic National Committee), the reinstatement of early voting in Ohio (on behalf of the ACLU & NAACP LDF), the restoration of voting rights of Florida citizens accused of being noncitizens (on behalf of a broad coalition of voting rights organizations), and the upholding of state statutes regulating voter list maintenance, the initiative process, and campaign finance laws in numerous states, including California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, and Washington.
