Open Primaries National Virtual Discussion
Organizer: Open Primaries
Join a discussion with Michael Hardy, general counsel for the National Action Network, Harry Kresky, counsel to Independent Voting, and Open Primaries SVP Jeremy Gruber. They are co-authors of the Touro Law Review article "Let All Voters Vote: Independents and the Expansion of Voting Rights in the United States." It is a comprehensive review of the legal fights and precedents that shape the current controversy around primary reform and nonpartisan electoral systems. It begins and ends with making the case that fully enfranchising independents is the next step in the expansion of voting rights in the United States.
