The Carter-Baker Commission: 16 Years Later: "Voting by Mail" (April 28, 2021)

Virtual Event

Record numbers of voters cast absentee ballots in 2020. While mail-in voting significantly expands voter access, some are concerned about the security of the absentee process. A look at the pros and cons of voting by mail, safeguards already in place, and additional ways to enhance the security of mail-in voting.

"Voting by Mail" is the second in a series of five virtual panel discussions using the recommendations of the bipartisan 2005 Carter-Baker Commission on Federal Election Reform as a framework to talk about current electoral issues.
