  • Webinar: Voting in the Time of COVID-19: Wisconsin’s Experience
    Date: July 14, 2020
    Location:
    Category: Webinar

    The April 7 election in the State of Wisconsin took place at an extraordinarily difficult time – the nation was just beginning to wrestle with the effects of the coronavirus, with significant impacts on the availability of people and resources usually needed to conduct a statewide vote. In addition, fierce partisan disagreements and resulting litigation created a fluid, contentious environment where the “rules of the road” were uncertain for election officials and voters alike. Through it all, Wisconsin’s election community – led by its State Election Commission – had to navigate both pandemic and politics to hold its primary.

    Join Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe for a discussion of the Badger State’s experience and lessons learned. Doug Chapin, Director of Election Research, Fors Marsh Group and CEA faculty will moderate.

  • Supporting the Youth Vote in 2020
    Date: July 14, 2020
    Location:
    Category: Webinar

    The 2020 general election has taken on renewed importance as the twin crises of racial injustice and a global pandemic profoundly change American life. For the generation just now coming of age and finding its voice politically, this year’s election offers an opportunity to shape the country’s future.

    Join the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE), part of Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life, and Gallup for a discussion on youth participation in the political process this November and beyond. Based on new research, the conversation will focus on:

    • The political behaviors and attitudes of younger Millennials and Generation Z, many of whom will be voting in their first presidential election
    • Young Americans’ support for different candidates, and whether those candidates are reaching out to them
    • Young Americans’ activism and overall civic engagement, and their access to the election process—especially given changes to elections due to COVID-19
    • The issues at the core of young people’s interest in casting a ballot in November, with a special attention to the concerns of youth of color

    The Defending Digital Democracy Project (D3P) is launching a national training tour effort for local election officials as they prepare for the 2020 election.

In addition to supporting local election officials through customized training, the tour may also host some special sessions for state election officials. Local jurisdictions can sign up for a block of virtual training sessions from June to August 2020, with the timing, content, and outputs customizable based on election officials’ schedules and priority needs. D3P’s work is committed to supporting officials in protecting the elections process. Just as you continue your work to serve the American people, we continue our work to serve you. This is a free, virtual resource that will involve discussion groups, live table top simulations, and state-specific content. Key training topics include operations management, crisis communications, disinformation, and Covid-19 support.
