Several state legislatures around the country have made changes to their voting laws since the last presidential election. The Brennan Center for Justice issued a recent report saying that some of these new laws will limit voter participation by minority, low-income, elderly, and student voters.
At this discussion, entitled "Excluded from Democracy: The Impact of Recent State Voting Law Changes,” House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers (D-MI) and House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD), joined other House Democrats in a look at these laws.
Speakers include representatives of the NAACP, ACLU, the Brennan Center, and the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights.
Other participants include House Administration Committee Ranking Member Robert Brady (D-PA), House Judiciary Constitution Subcommittee Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), and Representative Keith Ellison (D-MI).
