ACS Panel on Voter Suppression
Voter suppression has resurfaced with a vengeance.
Just last November, states implemented age-old tactics designed to limit voters' access to the polls, like strict voter ID laws, cutting voting times, restricting registration, and purging voter rolls. Even after the election results rolled out, some cried out against the results, claiming that voters took advantage of mail-in ballots or extended voting periods to vote improperly. Building on these claims, states across America are now introducing an unprecedented number of voter suppression bills. Georgia. Texas. Arizona. Alabama. Just to name a few.
Join the Northwestern Law ACS Student Chapter for a panel that will explore what this means for our democratic process. At this panel we will ask attorneys from across the United States, what kinds of measures are being taken by attorneys and activists against this tide of voter suppression, and can we help?
