This panel will discuss the paradox between California’s voter-friendly registration programs and its unequal voter engagement. Why do California elections not fully reflect the diversity of the state? What tactics increase electoral engagement at the state and county levels? As we look back at California history, what policies have shaped the voter experience?

Equity at the Polls features moderator Alisa Belinkoff Katz, lead author of UCLA’s recent report “Reckoning with Our Rights: The Evolution of Voter Access in California,” and election experts Kristin Nimmers from the California Black Power Network and Lori Pesante from Dolores Huerta Foundation.
