Join UC Center Sacramento and the New Electorate Project remotely on Thursday, October 22nd  from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm for a discussion, headlined by California Assemblymember Marc Berman and California Senator Tom Umberg, on "How Election Reforms, Participation Trends, and COVID-19 Will Shape California’s 2020 Election.” This discussion will bring together policymakers with UC faculty from the New Electorate Project to release a special issue of the California Journal of Politics and Policy as well as a new poll reporting how Californians view the upcoming election.  

Assemblymember Marc Berman represents the 24th District, which includes southern San Mateo Berman PhotoCounty and northern Santa Clara County in the heart of Silicon Valley. In the Assembly, Assemblymember Berman serves as chair of the Committee on Elections and Redistricting, where he has become a leading voice on protecting voters from deceptive elections practices, making election information more accessible to voters, and improving election cybersecurity and campaign finance disclosure.

Previously, he served in the California State Assembly, representing the 69th District. In the Senate, Senator Umberg serves as Chair of the Senate Select Committee on the 2020 United States Census and Chair of the Senate Committee on Elections and Constitutional Amendments.

The New Electorate Project is funded by the University of California’s Office of the President, this project brings together faculty members, graduate students and undergraduates at five UC campuses with collaborators at USC and the Public Policy Institute of California.
