Brown Bag Series: Democracy Forum, Voter Suppression Past & Present with Nick Biddle & Tim Kipp

14 November, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tim Kipp and Nick Biddle will review voter suppression in the past and the present. Beyond formal exclusions of gender, race and wealth applied throughout most of the nation’s history, intimidation, gerrymandering and registration restrictions have been applied. Voter suppression is driven by the permanent commitment of America’s elites to contain and control what the Founders described in 1787 as “the turbulence and follies of democracy.” We will assess voter suppression in the November 6 election to measure how fully it demeaned and diminished America’s putative democracy. Please join in the discussion.
