Washington, DC – With election leaders facing many crises recently, from conspiracy theories and cybersecurity threats to divisive new laws and court rulings, the Bipartisan Policy Center is excited to announce the 2022 Elections Summit on Tuesday, December 6, at Planet Word in Washington, DC.
“No one person, organization, or state is equipped to deter the threats facing our democracy alone,” said Matthew Weil, executive director of BPC’s Democracy Program. “The resiliency of our election infrastructure depends upon vigorous communication and collaboration. That’s exactly what our Elections Summit will accomplish.”
“2023 is the last best chance for policymakers to legislate on election administration before the 2024 election,” said Rachel Orey, associate director of elections at BPC. “To protect election integrity and access, the field must come together to communicate, collaborate, and make a plan of action. BPC’s 2022 Elections Summit is where that work begins.”
The summit will be a day-long event featuring five panel discussions with elected leaders and foremost experts, moderated by journalists on the frontlines of democracy, voting, and election issues. View the full itinerary here.
