The Symposium will be devoted to current topics in Voting Rights and Election Law including the Supreme Court's recent decision in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, the Democratic Party's handling of the Florida and Michigan delegate dispute, as well as a review of election reforms since 2000 with an eye on what still needs to be done to ensure every vote is counted.
