  • Saving the Vote in 2020: Elections and the Coronavirus
    Date: May 4, 2020
    Location:
    Category: 2020

    The coronavirus is a health crisis and an economic crisis. Without urgent action, it will become a democracy crisis in November. How can we avoid a debacle? How can we have an election that is free, fair, secure – and safe? The Brennan Center for Justice is at the center of the fight to protect every voter and every vote. Last month, we released a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety and credibility of the election. Among its provisions: universal option to vote by mail and expanded early voting. In the next few weeks, Congress must act to provide funding for states to run their elections. Then a drive across the country so states can retool their systems so everyone can safely vote. When: May 4, 1pm Eastern. Where: Online.

  • What if the 2020 Presidential Election is Disputed?
    Date: May 4, 2020
    Location: Online
    Category: 2020

    Pull up a (virtual) seat as a panel of nationally recognized legal scholars, political scientists, and experts in election administration, Electoral College procedures, and presidential succession grapples with the legal issues that could arise in a series of hypothetical scenarios involving the 2020 presidential election.

    The conversations will be divided into three distinct time frames from Election Day to Inauguration Day when complex legal issues could test our electoral process in new and serious ways.  

    This event is not merely an academic exercise, but an effort to identify the potential legal risks looming over the election and spark a national discussion about how we can put our country in a better position to handle similar scenarios should they arise.

    (This is one webinar which you will be able to join and re-join throughout the day.)

  • When Women Vote
    Date: April 30, 2020
    Location: Online
    Category: Voting Rights

    American voters, particularly women, face challenges when trying to vote. In the 100 years since the ratification of the 19th Amendment, reforms prohibiting restrictions on voting based on sex have led to improvements, but there is still room for continued progress. On April 30, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Elections Project will host a discussion with the authors of When Women Vote, who make the case for further voting reform and for removing bias in the voting process by sharing stories and experiences of women voters and leaders throughout the United States. They will be joined by secretaries of state, who are the chief election officials at the state level. Panelists include: Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman and Amber McReynolds and Stephanie Donner, co-authors of When Women Vote. When April 30, 2pm. Where: Online.
