From 7 to 8:30 p.m. hear from our speakers and engage in a question/answer session with them. Our electoral processes are part of the critical infrastructure of our democracy. What do we expect of our elections? Do they need protection to ensure acceptable performance? What are the most significant risks and how can they be minimized? What can citizens do?
