Civic Engagement Series: The Importance of Elections
The pandemic has highlighted vulnerabilities in our elections systems across the county, many of which existed long before 2020. Washington State's vote-by-mail system provides safe access and higher participation, while voters in other states wait in line and struggle to keep a healthy distance. What can be done here in Washington, as well as nationally, to improve the accessibility, security, and trustworthiness of our elections? What role can businesses play in supporting access to democracy? What would it take to help create a democracy that looks more like the people it serves? Join the discussion with GSBA, Business for America, More Equitable Democracy, and the LGBTQ Victory Fund.
