Most people do not realize that California has one of the lowest voter registration rates of any state in the country. Minorities are less likely to be registered to vote and turn out to vote in elections, but being the population majority in California now, could have a big impact in state politics. The legal community has a special obligation to help community members participate in the political process.

This panel will address the critical impact that voter registration can have on our democracy, as well as, voting rights history, ongoing voter participation disparities in California, and recent legislative changes that attempt to address those disparities. Attendees will become equipped to hold voter registration drives and spread information before elections.

Eligible for 1 HR MCLE Credit
