My favorite Excess of Democracy posts from 2016

What I enjoy writing here at Excess of Democracy does not always correlate with what others enjoy reading. I'll soon post my year-end report with the most popular posts, but I thought I'd offer a few of my favorite posts from Excess of Democracy in 2016, as I did in 2015. (For my academic work, my SSRN page is a good place to start--articles were published in the Florida State University Law Review, the Arizona Law Review, the Fordham Law Review, the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy, the Ohio State Law Journal Furthermore, and the George Washington Law Review On the Docket. Any my favorite content published elsewhere--Wall Street Journal opinion pieces on the third-party ballot and campaign finance outcomes, and faithless electors; a Washington Post piece on the Electoral College; a St. Louis Post-Dispatch piece on Judge Raymond W. Gruender, for whom I clerked; and a piece at the Online Library of Law and Liberty about campaign finance law--are also not listed below. A more complete list can be found on my CV.)
