10 Most-Cited Election Law Scholars in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017

 Based on the latest Sisk data, here are the ten most-cited election law scholars in the U.S. for the period 2013-2017 (inclusive) (remember that the data was collected in late May of 2018, and that the pre-2018 database did expand a bit since then). Numbers are rounded to the nearest five.    Faculty for whom roughly 75% or more of their citations (based on a sample) are in this area are listed; others with less than 75% of their citations in this field (but still a plurality) are listed in the category of "other highly cited scholars who work partly in this area."   (The 75% rule was a bit harder to apply here, since some of these scholars write influentially in other fields; but it's fair to say that each of these scholars may be best-known for the election law work.)
