Please join us for this season’s first installment of the Schieffer Series, “The Future of Voting in America.”

H. Andrew Schwartz, CSIS’s Chief Communications Officer, will host a discussion with three expert nonpartisan panelists about voting rights and voter suppression in America. Andy Bernstein is the Executive Director of HeadCount, a nonpartisan organization that harnesses the power of music to drive social change, register voters, and promote participation in democracy. Amber McReynolds is the CEO of the nonpartisan Vote at Home Institute and is one of the country’s leading experts on election administration policy. She was recently nominated by President Biden to serve on the U.S. Postal Service’s governing board. Aditi Juneja, serves as counsel for the nonpartisan Protect Democracy, an organization that works to prevent corruption of elections, delegitimization of vulnerable communities, politicization of independent institutions, and much more.

Grounding the conversation around the nonpartisan history of voting legislation in the United States, the panelists will focus on voting rights as a matter of national security and the future of voting in the U.S. The guests will discuss the work they and their organizations are doing to reduce voter suppression around the country, the danger our current polarized political state of affairs poses, the impact of media polarization, and what more can be done legally and locally to ensure every vote counts in America.
