Supreme Court Hears Alabama and Louisiana Lawsuits
With the mid-terms fast approaching, this briefing will explore threats to the way elections are run in the US — not just who gets to vote, but how and whether the votes get counted.
Speakers will discuss gerrymandered maps that diminish the power of voters of color, laws that restrict access to the polls, efforts by partisan poll workers to interfere in the election process, among other dangerous trends, and efforts to address them, including two law suits by civil rights groups in Alabama and Louisiana being argued before the Supreme Court on Oct. 4.
