Expert panel explores findings of civic literacy survey

Results from the 2022 American Bar Association Survey of Civic Literacy demonstrate that a majority of Americans support increasing the number of ballot drop boxes, allowing drive-through voting and allowing same-day voter registration on Election Day.

The ABA sponsored an online program exploring the survey’s results on voting. The panel, moderated by NBC News correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, included Wendy K. Mariner, founder of the ABA Task Force on Fair Elections and Voting Rights; Amir Badat, manager of the Voting Rights Defender and Prepared to Vote Projects at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Phillip J. Strach, a partner at Nelson Mullins in Raleigh, North Carolina, who has litigated redistricting cases.
