The Right to Vote: the Vote Fraud Commission

Voting is a fundamental right in the United States, a basic requirement for democratic governance. The last few years controversial voting requirements have been adopted in some states. Recently, President Trump created the “Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.” The Commission is charged with studying “the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections” and identifying “vulnerabilities in voting systems” that could lead to voter fraud. Myrna Perez from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law joined us for a public presentation on the current voting rights environment in the United States, President Trump’s commission on voting integrity, and the adoption of restrictive voting requirement in states.  This event was sponsored by the Political Science Department and the Program in Public Policy and Political Economy.
