George Mason wrote in the Virginia Declaration of Rights that representatives of the people should be chosen in “frequent, certain, and elections.” With all of the talk about mid-terms, it’s the perfect time to step back and look at the history of elections and voting in America.

Speakers include:
David Becker, Center for Elections Innovation and Research
The Current Crisis in American Democracy – from Foreign Threats to Civic Disengagement

Holly Brewer, University of Maryland
Democracy as Process: Voting and Election Integrity in the Revolutionary Era

Martha Grove, National Archives and Records Administration
The Art of Politics: Campaigns and the Cartoons of Clifford Berryman

Linda Monk, Constitutional Scholar, Journalist, and Award-winning Author
