Please join Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) on September 13th at 12pm eastern for a webinar featuring the Pew Center on the States’ Election Initiatives’ Upgrading Voter Registration project, an effort in partnership with states to upgrade their voter registration systems to improve accuracy of voter rolls, increase efficiency and save taxpayer dollars, while enhancing the integrity of the rolls.
As the gateway to voter participation, voter registration systems serve both as a point of entry for eligible voters and a safeguard from ineligible voters, protecting the integrity of elections. Despite its fundamental role, however, the current voter registration system is costly, inefficient and frequently inaccurate. Significant voter registration problems in recent elections reinforce its shortcomings.
Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE, will moderate the webinar with speaker David Becker.
David Becker is the project director for the Pew Center on the States’ Election Initiatives voter registration efforts. Prior to joining Pew, David served as a senior trial attorney in the Voting Section of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division for seven years, leading investigations into violations of federal voting laws.
PACE is an affinity group of the Council on Foundations and serves as a learning collaborative of funders doing work in the fields of civic engagement, service and democratic renewal and reform.
