Thousands of voters waited for hours to cast their ballots in November, standing in line long after the polls closed. To ensure our democracy remains free, fair, and accessible for all eligible Americans, election officials across the country — both Republicans and Democrats — realize we need new and innovative ways to think about voter registration.

The Brennan Center for Justice is hosting an event for opinion leaders like you to discuss how America can improve voter registration and ensure that every citizen who takes the responsibility to register and vote can actually do so. Featuring leaders from the Brennan Center and leading Secretaries of State with extensive experience managing the voting process, the conversation will touch on what we’re doing right, what we’re doing wrong, and how to fix it.

Lunch will be served.
