With legal fights over the election being waged across the country and disinformation clouding the truth about voting systems, Americans can be forgiven for their confusion about how to cast a ballot this fall. Because each state sets its own rules — for registering, getting and returning vote-by-mail ballots, timetables for balloting in person and so many other things — keeping it all straight can be difficult for both voting rights advocates and individual voters.
The Fulcrum invites you to a live discussion, at noon (Eastern) on Wednesday, Sept. 23, in which we will discuss the realities of voting during the coronavirus pandemic, answering your questions about how individual states are handling voting procedures and where voting has become easier. And we will walk you through resources that you can share with friends and family.
By bringing together experts in the field, we will help you and your community prepare to participate in an era-defining election. The discussion will be moderated by The Fulcrum's editor-in-chief, David Hawkings, and will feature:
- David Levine, elections integrity fellow, Alliance for Securing Democracy
- Jack Noland, research manager, RepresentUs
- Eliza Sweren-Becker, Democracy Program counsel, Brennan Center for Justice
