Some critics warn of risks of widespread voter fraud in our upcoming election. Others complain there is little evidence of such fraud and reply that the greater worry is ballot access, particularly for underrepresented communities. With concerns about numbers of polling places and ID requirements, some critics warn that policies should be more carefully crafted to be appropriately inclusive of eligible voters.

Join a virtual panel discussion on this important topic, featuring:

· Enrijeta Shino, Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of North Florida

· Thessalia Merivaki, Assistant Professor in American Politics at Mississippi State University.

· Andrea Young, Executive Director, ACLU of Georgia.
