Election Matters 2023

2023 may be off the regular cycle but election news doesn’t stop. The Elections Research Center will partner with the State Democracy Research Initiative to host the Election Matters 2023 event series. This 3-event series will bring together various experts to dissect developments in all things elections related.

The first event will be on July 11 and will tackle recent Supreme Court and state court cases related to election law and administration. The next two events will take place in the fall.
