‘HAVA @ 10’ to mark changes in way Americans vote

The Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) became law 10 years ago. To commemorate this occasion and discuss how American election administration has changed over the past decade, The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law’s Election Law @ Moritz program, its Legislation Clinic, and Election Law Journal are co-sponsoring a conference, “HAVA @ 10.”

National experts in election administration, elected officials, political scientists, legal scholars, and lawyers will convene in downtown Columbus on May 18 for the one-day conference. Topics to be covered include laws regarding voter registration; voting technologies; the future of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission; the division of authority among federal, state, and local entities; and election administration issues that HAVA has not addressed. Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, former Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives, will be the keynote lunch speaker.

The conference will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, May 18 at the Vern Riffe Center for Government and the Arts, 77 S. High St., 31st Floor, Columbus, OH 43215.

CLE credit is available for attendees. For a complete schedule, list of presenters, and to register, visit here.
