Trusting the Vote Zoom Series

Join us this fall as we partner with our friends at MAD? Make a Difference for a two-part Zoom series on trusting the vote!

In an election year, we rely on respected community leaders to help us navigate and trust the democratic process. With our democracy under attack by partisans, never has it been more important to hear from local election officials, activists, and candidates than before the Mid-Term Elections.

As Alabama nears the Mid-Term Election, many voters reflect on the dominance of one-party in the state’s politics and governance. Some wonder if the state truly reflects a democracy when the voices of minority parties are suppressed by a range of mechanisms, from legislative gerrymandering to being ignored by the mainstream media.
