Democracy Reform in California: 
Voting Rights, Recall and the Electoral College

Voting rights are important to all Americans. This webinar focuses on current issues in California and the challenges to our democracy during the past year in the forms of mis- and disinformation, gerrymandering, and voter suppression. Additionally, panelists will discuss the progress California has made to build a more accessible democracy, including details on landmark laws that make access to voter registration and voting easier, and data showing whether or not those reforms have really made a difference. Additionally, drawing on data from the UC San Diego Yankelovich Center Survey on Recall Reform, we will discuss what voters thought about the recall process this year and what the prospects are for reform over the next year.
