Does My Vote Matter?

August 11 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Does My Vote Matter?

August 11, 2020
Districting, gerrymandering, electoral college — find out where (and if) your vote really matters + ask your questions of our guest expert.

With this year’s presidential election approaching, voices across the political spectrum are competing and fighting for our votes. But with all kinds of state and local districting, the electoral college, claims of gerrymandering, and a focus on swing states, it’s confusing to know how much one vote really matters.

In this virtual Civic Series event, we’ll explore questions like:

  • What are voting districts and does it matter which districts I’m in?
  • What is gerrymandering and how does it work?
  • Do votes in swing states/districts matter more than others?
  • Who makes the decisions about districting and voting access?

…and many more.

Join our jargon-free, virtual explainer and Q&A with guest expert Dr. Elaine Kamarck, Senior Fellow in the Governance Studies program and Director of the Center for Effective Public Management at the Brookings Institution. We cover the essentials and answer your questions about the impact of your vote.

Send us your questions before and during the event:

Text or leave a voicemail at (617) 398-0051 so we can play your question during the event! Or email us hello at civic series dot org.
