Federal Contested Elections Act: Overview and Recent Contests in the House of Representatives [January 19, 2021] [open pdf - 537KB]
From the Document: "The Federal Contested Elections Act (FCEA; 2 U.S.C. §§381-396), enacted in 1969, rests at the intersection of federal election law and policy, legislative procedure, and constitutional provisions regarding congressional authority over House elections and membership. This CRS [Congressional Research Service] In Focus provides a brief overview of the FCEA and highlights recent contests initiated under the statute. FCEA contests rarely change election results, as doing so typically requires the House to overturn a state-certified election result."
