With an open Supreme Court vacancy Republicans are rushing to fill, Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transition of power, and ongoing battles over voter suppression and mail-in voting even amidst a global pandemic, it is clear that core tenets of our democracy are under attack as Election Day approaches. Federal courts make vital decisions at every step, and have already played a critical role in state and federal races this year. Judges could determine how and which ballots are counted, settle disputes about in person or absentee voting, set registration deadlines, and potentially resolve a disputed election.
Join Alliance for Justice, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Dale Ho, ACLU’s Voting Rights Director on Wednesday, October 21 at 6pm ET to discuss the historic role of the federal judiciary during this unprecedented election. Guy-Uriel Charles, Edward and Ellen Schwarzman Professor of Law, Duke University School of Law, will moderate the conversation.
