This event will bring the state and local policymaking community into conversation with scholars, who will present original research briefs that explore the impact of our state’s new voting laws on turnout and the representativeness of the California election.  These research briefs, which will be distributed at the event and posted on newelectorateproject.org, address questions such as:

· How did the Voter’s Choice Act affect turnout in 2018, especially for young voters and members of underrepresented minority groups?

· How do different types of political information affect citizens’ perceptions of the Voter’s Choice Act?   

· What methods of casting a ballot did voters prefer and trust most in 2018?

· What voter mobilization methods are most effective for members of underrepresented groups?  

· How has the shift in the timing of local elections changed levels of turnout, and what steps need to be taken to ensure that underrepresented voters are included?  

 

Panelists from the policymaking community will include:

James Schwab, Chief Deputy of the Secretary of State

Zachary Yeates, Director of Civic Engagement for Sacramento Mayor Steinberg

Astrid Ochoa, Executive Director of the Future of California Elections

Courtney Bailey-Kanelos, Registrar of Voters for Sacramento County
