The State of Voting in 2018

Friday, October 5, 2018 - 2:00pm

This fall, voters will head to the polls for the first time in national elections since the 2016 presidential contest was marred by foreign election interference.

Yet voters will still face serious challenges to making their voices heard. How could gerrymandered legislative maps affect the results? What steps have states taken to prevent cyberattacks? Will an array of new and existing restrictive voting laws create barriers? Is there good news? How will new automatic registration led in seven states work to expand access to the polls?

Please join some of the nation’s leading voting experts to discuss these questions and more at The State of Voting in 2018.
