About the Program

With voter turnout in California on the decline, the state has been in the forefront of efforts to expand the electorate. How have recent reform efforts fared? PPIC research fellow Eric McGhee will provide an overview, and a panel of leaders will discuss how to motivate more Californians to exercise their right to vote.

This project is supported with funding from the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
