CONTINUING CHALLENGES TO SUFFRAGE IN MICHIGAN IN 2020: WHO STILL CAN'T VOTE?
A U-M Suffrage 2020 panel

This panel will address the long struggle for women’s right to vote in the U.S., officially secured 100 years ago, and—equally importantly—the continuing struggle to secure full democratic participation in Michigan. Panelists will describe real barriers to voting in Michigan today, as well as efforts to change rules and regulations to expand access to voting, and what it will take to increase access for some groups in the upcoming election.
