Election 2016

Election 2016

The Pepperdine School of Public Policy & the Davenport Institute for Public Engagement and Civic Leadership have developed a 2016 Presidential Election conference. Election 2.016 will take place on October 14 in Malibu, CA and will explore how technology is changing the way voters engage in the election process. I will be there on a panel which will explore how technology is changing how we vote. I hope to project an election attitude and share a vision for how Internet voting will lead to a stronger American democracy. Copies of Election Attitude will be available for speakers and attendees. There are critics and skeptics on the topic of Internet voting and I look forward to the opportunity to discuss it.

The one-day conference will include the following:

Vote
Session 1: Informed Voting in the Information Age
Session 2: Networking for Engagement
Lunch Keynote: How Social Media Has Changed the American Campaign
Session 3: Getting to the Ballot Box: Technology and Political Engagement
Session 4: Election Day Technology
Session 5: County Registrar Roundtable – Implementing Election 2.0

The full day is free and open to the public, but registration is required. You can find out more and register here. Election 2.016 is part of a Pepperdine University campus-wide effort to promote voter engagement in what will be an historic Presidential Election.
