BHDA Attorney Contributes to ABA Book on Election Law

C. Robert “Bob” Heath, founding partner of Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP, joined a select group of attorneys and other professionals as a contributing author to the recently released fourth edition of America Votes! Challenges to Modern Election Law and Voting Rights, published by the American Bar Association (ABA).

Mr. Heath wrote the book’s first chapter entitled “Immigration, Citizenship, and the 2020 Census,” which explores the background of the controversy of adding a citizenship question to the census and the apparent, but unstated, reason for seeking to make the change.

In addition to his contribution in the newest edition of “America Votes!,” Mr. Heath authored the chapters “The Impact of Noncitizens on Voting Rights Issues” and “Using Census Data Sources to Prove Citizenship in Voting Rights Litigation,” respectively, for the second and third editions of the publication.

Since 1971, Mr. Heath has represented hundreds of governmental entities in redistricting issues. He has also represented many governments in significant federal voting rights litigation in Texas and in the District of Columbia courts, in the Fifth Circuit, and in the U.S. Supreme Court.
