Ohio State has an election law program.

Of course most of the top schools will have great offerings in election law.  But relative to their overall rankings, Georgetown and Ohio have a strong reputation, from what I understand.

William and Mary seems to have some sort of dedicated program.

As far as a PROGRAM in election law that will EDUCATE you, Ohio State is one of the best. However, as with any legal field, you are probably better off going to the best school you get into. So whereas a Berkeley might not have anything tailored to Election Law (they might, I'm just making an example) going there would give you more job opportunities in Election law than Ohio State, even though OSU's election law program is better. It's kind of like how a student with a Poli Sci degree from Princeton will get a better job than a Poli Sci student from UCSD, even though UCSD's 'program' is better. Make sense?

Richard Pildes and Samuel Isacharoff are two of the top election law scholars in the country, and are both at NYU. Pamela Karlan is also top, and is at Stanford. NYU also has the Brennan Center for Justice, which does a lot of impact litigation in that field.

http://electionlawblog.org/ is a good resource.
