ONLINE—Equity at the Polls: Voter Access in California Elections

April 28 @ 4:00 pm5:00 pm

Free

Since 1960, California has greatly improved its voter registration process. Ballots are now mail-in, multilingual, and registration is available up to election day. Why then do California elections not fully reflect the diversity of the state?  This panel will discuss the paradox between California’s voter-friendly registration programs and its unequal voter participation. As we look back at California history, what policies have shaped the voter experience? What tactics can increase – and sustain – voter engagement?  Join us on Zoom on April 28 at 4pm for Equity at the Polls: Voter Access in California Elections. To register, use the link below.

Thursday, April 28 4:00-5:00 pm PST

Panel: Kristin Nimmers, California Black Power Network Lori Pesante, Dolores Huerta Foundation Moderator: Alisa Belinkoff Katz, lead author of UCLA’s recent report Reckoning with Our Rights: The Evolution of Voter Access in California Through California On The Ballot, California Humanities invites the people of California and beyond to reflect and talk—with neighbors, historians, election experts, and more—about the past, present, and future of electoral engagement in California.
