Event | What to Know about the U.S. Elections Heading into 2024

Hybrid Event

With the 2024 presidential election campaign season quickly approaching, many observers are already anticipating what may come. Since the last presidential election in 2020, Georgia and Texas made controversial changes to their election laws, which could impact voter turnout in those states. And Democrats and Republicans alike have used complaints about voter suppression or the accuracy of the vote count as a wedge to motivate their voters to the polls — resulting in a rising distrust of elections.

At the third annual collaboration between the Baker Institute Presidential Elections Program and The Carter Center, experts on both sides of the aisle will explore these issues and more with a focus on what the 2024 presidential election could bring.

In addition, the event will feature a lunchtime discussion at 1:15 p.m. (EDT) titled A Legacy of President Jimmy Carter: Free and Fair Elections Around the World.
