HARVARD AT HOME - THREATS TO OUR ELECTION PROCESS AND WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THEM
THIS VIRTUAL EVENT has been arranged by Jeewon Park '89 AB, '93 MBA (HRCW) and by Scott Levy '94, HAA Director for Metropolitan New York and New Jersey (Harvard Clubs of Long Island, New Jersey and Princeton, and the Harvard-Radcliffe Clubs of Westchester and Hudson Valley).
Date: Wednesday, November 30, 2022
Time: 7:00PM Eastern
Place: THIS IS A VIRTUAL EVENT
Distinguished NYU Law Professor Rick Pildes (‘83 JD), one of the nation’s leading scholars of constitutional law and a specialist in legal issues concerning American democracy, has argued election-law cases before the Supreme Court; testified to Congress on election law issues; worked with election administrators throughout the country; and written extensively on the issues of most concern about the integrity of our elections and what to do to safeguard the election process against potential manipulation.
Join us as Professor Pildes highlights:
- What are the risks facing the American election process for the 2024 elections, in light of what we learned from the 2022 mid-terms that were just completed?
- What's being done or could be done about those risks?
- How would cases currently before the Supreme Court affect the election process for 2024?
- How does the proposed bipartisan Electoral Count Reform Act of 2022 (ECRA) address many of these questions and why is its passage before year-end 2022 imperative?
There will be an introduction and Q & A moderated by Michael Otten, President of Reform Elections Now, a non-partisan election reform group.
