Eighth Annual State of Voting Rights

As we enter into another election cycle, please join us for the Eighth Annual State of Voting Rights program. Our esteemed panel consists of those who run elections, advocate for voters, and fight for the right to vote in the courts and in halls of Congress. We plan to have a comprehensive conversation about threats to the franchise, redistricting, the Electoral Count Act and prospective policy changes on the federal and state level.  Our panel will take special note of recent Supreme Court opinions on the Voting Rights Act, and we will discuss ways to protect the vote moving into 2024.
