Community Forum: Does Your Vote Count in California?

Join us for a thoughtful, enlightening evening that examines how our electoral system represents the many voices of California.

- Does the new primary calendar benefit California?
- What are the biggest issues facing California in this election year, and are our national leaders paying enough attention to them?
- How will California ballots be counted? Should we be worried about electronic voting?

Panel Discussion featuring: Barry Fadem, President of National Popular Vote, Kathay Feng, Executive Director of California Common Cause and Steven Hill, Director of the Political Reform Program of the New America Foundation

Moderated by Richard Gonzales, National Public Radio

Presented by ITVS as part of the VOTE DEMOCRACY! Campaign encouraging everyone-particularly young Americans and new voters to get involved in the democratic process.
