People express their power at the ballot box by giving power to elected officials and public institutions. For generations, Americans have struggled to secure their right to vote, but today, access to the polls remains one of the most hotly contested topics in American politics, especially right before an election for president.
In this seventh and final webinar in the Power to the People series from the Center for Civic Education, Michael Li, senior counsel for the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program, explains the power of voting, with a special focus on the Electoral College, gerrymandering, and voter suppression.
The Power of Voting webinar is designed especially for teachers of civics, government, and U.S. history who want to better understand the power of voting, but everyone is welcome to attend.
The Power to the People webinar series is sponsored by the Center for Civic Education, Kansas State University, and the Indiana Bar Foundation.
