Civic Lab--Are All Votes Equal?: Online Event
Monday, September 28, 2020
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Are all votes equal in the United States? Learn about forms of voter suppression and voting methodologies by state and discuss ways to question the effectiveness of our electoral system.
Although voting is viewed as a necessary right in a democracy, voter suppression continues to be an obstacle to civic engagement in the United States.
This event is part of our ongoing Civic Lab series, Election 2020. Over the next weeks, we will look at the history of voting in the United States, as well as how the pandemic, news media coverage, and foreign entities are influencing our elections. We will also look at what roles we may play to help this democratic process.
