Democracy at your fingertips: Your voice, your vote, make it count!
This year CUNY Law Review will examine the interplay between voter rights, technology, and democracy, specifically on the issues of gerrymandering, the 2020 Census, and the upcoming election. NYDLCer John Owens Jr. will be on the panel "Voter Suppression & Language Access at the Ballot," which will discuss barriers to voting such as long lines, voter ID laws, broken voting machines, and disenfranchisement of formerly incarcerated persons, and proposals such as ranked choice and instant run-off voting. This is a day long event with panels on the 2020 census and voter technology as well, and will feature NY State Attorney General and friend of NYDLC Letitia James.
