Attention voters and activists from Indiana and Ohio! The National Commission on Voting Rights is hosting hearings across the country to learn more about the current landscape of elections. Over the past few years, numerous states have enacted restrictive voting laws, while many others continue to grapple with recurring election administration and electoral reform challenges.

Come out and testify on problems, successes and opportunities for reform in all aspects of voting in the Indiana & Ohio– from registration and early voting to Election Day and redistricting. The hearing is free and open to the public; all who are interested may attend and/or speak.

There will be formal panels of witnesses representing voting rights organizations, community leaders, election officials, and other stakeholders.

There will also be opportunities throughout the event when voters can speak about their experiences. We welcome and encourage you to submit written testimony in advance of the hearing. Note: The opinions expressed during the hearing are solely those of the witnesses.

For more information, please contact Sonia Gill at sgill@lawyerscommittee.org. Members of the media interested in covering the event should contact Stacie Royster, Lawyers’ Committee at (202) 662-8317 or sroyster@lawyerscommittee.org
