ABSTRACT
The article focuses on election law that connects two fields including democratic theory and empirical political science. It informs that democratic theory is a branch of political philosophy which helps in keeping numerous competing accounts, and also discusses the impact of instability and lack of predictability on the content of the right to vote in electoral politics. It further informs about empirical political science that provides tools to test the extent of particular legal regime.
