BPC hosted a panel of election administrators and experts as we explore “Are we ready to run our elections?” With less than two months days until Election Day 2012, much of the attention is centered on the candidates. But are the nation’s election officials and the voting public prepared to handle the election rush? Are new Voter ID laws, changing early voting times, and new voter registration regulations keeping voters away from the polls? How will we count the votes and will there be recounts? 

The Democracy Project’s 2012 Election Series explores in depth our nation’s electoral system, campaigns, and the political outlook for November 2012. 

The event was in partnership with the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
