Florida Hearing on Voting

3:00pm – 7:00pm

University of Miami School of Law
1311 Miller Rd
Coral Gables, FL 33146

Attention voters, activists, elections officials and all with a stake in Florida’s elections! We invite you to come out to the University of Miami School of Law to hear about the state of voting in Florida and share your voting experiences.The hearing is free, nonpartisan, and open to the public! There will be two panels of witnesses testifying on topics such as voting discrimination, registration and polling place problems, access for voters with disabilities and language minorities, and more.

This hearing is part of a series of fact-finding hearings hosted by the National Commission on Voting Rights that are taking place across the country. The goal of these hearings is to learn more about the current landscape of elections. Over the past few years, numerous states have enacted restrictive voting laws, while many others continue to grapple with recurring election administration and electoral reform challenges. The Commission will document what keeps voters from the ballot box and election reform efforts that expand access.

We want to hear from you! The public can participate by providing oral testimony during the hearing’s public comment periods and by submitting written testimony before the hearing by email to NCVR@lawyerscommittee.org.

RSVP is strongly encouraged, but not required. RSVPhere.

Please share this email notice with your networks, and follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag#NCVR.

For questions, please contact Rebecca Kelly Arnold atrarnold@lawyerscommittee.org.
