Inclusion, Representation, and Security in Colorado’s Elections

  •  September 23, 2020
     5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Truman National Security Project’s Colorado Chapter and MSU Denver’s Golda Meir Center for Political Leadership invite you to an election security discussion with Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, ACLU-CO Public Policy Director Denise Maes, and MSU Denver Chair of Political Science Robert Preuhs.  Included will be discussion about the local challenges to increasing voter participation, the national challenges related to dis/misinformation and the postal service, and the global challenges from external actors like Russia.

DHS says Colorado tops the nation in election security, but that didn’t stop suspected Russian hackers from “jiggling the lock” on Colorado’s voter database. Even when our ballots are safe, domestic and externally-driven mis/disinformation campaigns are targeting Colorado voters. And now we are beset by a pandemic that has decreased voter registration, particularly among young people, and impacted the way we cast ballots. We will talk about strategies we can take as individuals and as state and municipal officials to strengthen and defend democratic participation.
