My name is Joseph B. Kulhavy; I am a licensed attorney in the State of Texas, and from October 6, 2004, until July 2, 2013, I was a staff attorney with the Elections Division, Texas Secretary of State.
The opinions offered here are my own. Nothing within this blog should be taken as the legal advice of counsel—if you have a legal dispute or require legal advice, please consult with your own attorney.
In addition, while I aim for 100% precision and accuracy in all posts on this blog, I am one guy (no factchecking department, alas), so if you find an error, please let me know right away and I’ll address it.
I launched this blog on July 3, 2013, with the aim of providing a more informal source of information for people who are interested in the law—and particularly election law—as the operating system for society. Given this mission, and my interest in law as the game engine of governance, I often also touch on history, economics, and constitutional law.
I have a background in teaching and public speaking and an abiding interest in researching and explaining complex legal issues. So I welcome comments and questions—please send them my way via this blog.
