ACS Northeast Ohio: Voting and COVID-19: Existential Threats to Safe and Fair Elections in 2020
In light of the disturbing scenes from last week's election in Wisconsin, there should be no illusions about the difficulties ahead and the need to take proactive steps to prepare for a safe and fair election everywhere in the country. Now is the time to advocate and ensure that all American's voices are heard in future elections, especially in November 2020.
As a result, the ACS Northeast Ohio Chapter, The Raben Group, and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law have partnered to put on a virtual panel of experts who will examine these concerns and look at strategies for moving forward to ensure secure and equitable elections in 2020.
