About the Program
To maintain voting access during the pandemic, California shifted to universal vote-by-mail for the 2020 general election, while some counties consolidated their polling places. PPIC researcher Eric McGhee will present findings from a new report on the sometimes-contradictory impact of these changes, and a panel of experts will discuss how reforms affected turnout, especially among young voters and voters of color.
This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle.
