Election Matters 2022: Redistricting and the Voting Rights Act

June 30, 2022 @ 12:00 pm

This midterm election season, the Elections Research Center will partner with the State Democracy Research Initiative to host the Election Matters 2022 event series. This event series will bring together diverse experts to tackle evolving election-related issues. Potential topics include election administration, the Voting Rights Act, redistricting, campaign finance, election misinformation, and direct democracy in states.

In Wisconsin and around the country, the post-2020 redistricting cycle has been contentious. Disputes about the Voting Rights Act and about partisan gerrymandering have loomed especially large. Please join us for another virtual installment of Election Matters 2022. This webinar will explore hot topics in redistricting law, with emphasis on the Voting Rights Act, and consider the proper role of courts and other federal and state institutions in the redistricting process.
