Election Legitimacy in Peril: Where Do We Go From Here?

This event has passed.

American democracy rests on voters having confidence in the legitimacy of elections. But any number of events can undermine that confidence, including targeted interference by malicious actors, a pandemic, a refusal by losing candidates to accept defeat, severe weather events, and widespread infrastructure failures. When Americans are unable to cast ballots as expected, or results are not as clear or timely as anticipated, there will inevitably be complaints about perceived bias in the system that allows partisans to attack the process itself.

Please join us for a conversation with Secretaries of State Jena Griswold of Colorado and Frank LaRose of Ohio as we explore the spectrum of election legitimacy concerns we face in the United States and the role we all must play to ensure a legitimate election.

Join us on Zoom.
