How do we mobilize turnout for the election? Join the University of Maryland School of Public Policy, participating BIG10 universities and leading public health and elections experts for the third session in this collaborative special speaker series that discusses safe, fair and full election participation.
Panelists will focus on turnout of historically disenfranchised groups of voters as well as the threat to turnout posed by the pandemic. Discussion will seek to address community organization and voter protection stakeholders and experts to identify best principles and practices for assessing a “full” election.
