ElectionIntegrityConference
Election Integrity in a Time of Political Polarization:
Gerrymandering, Redistricting Commissions and the 2020 Census Citizenship Question


Friday, October 4, 2019
8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, CSU
Moot Court Room
1801 Euclid Ave, Cleveland 44115 

This Conference, designed to educate members of the both the law school and larger community about core voting issues, will occur at a critical time. The United States Supreme Court issued decisions in both the gerrymandering and census question cases at the end of the spring term (June 2019). Thus, scholars and other experts will still be assessing the significance of those two decisions by the time of the Conference. It is also anticipated that there will be additional legal challenges to various aspects of our voting procedures and system of representation--from independent redistricting commissions to efforts to halt alleged voter fraud--in the run-up to the 2020 general election. Given the political polarization to which the title of the Conference refers, the outcome of the upcoming election will likely have important consequences for years to come.

Featured Guest Speakers: Allegra Lawrence-Hardy, Esq. and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Melody Stewart

Free and open to members of the Cleveland State University community and the public. (If you plan to receive CLE Credits, the fee is $150 for the full day; $80 for a half-day)

Sponsored by the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, in partnership with the Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association and the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio.
