GREENWICH, Conn. -- Political organizations in Greenwich will host a public forum about voting patterns and the electorate in the United States on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at Greenwich Library.
The League of Women Voters of Greenwich, the Greenwich Democratic Town Committee and the Greenwich Republican Town Committee will host “Election Matters: the State of Voting in 2016” from 7-9 p.m. at Cole Auditorium. The forum will include voter registration and refreshments.
The forum will feature the award-winning documentary, “Electoral Dysfunction,” a panel discussion and audience question and answer sessions with Connecticut’s top election officials and leading advocates for voter access and voter integrity.
The panel will be moderated by Victoria Bassetti, a fellow for the Brennan Center for Justice and author of “Electoral Dysfunction.” It will also include:

- Denise Merrill, CT Secretary of the State
- Michael Waldman, President, Brennan Center for Justice and author of “The Fight to Vote: Voter registration and absentee ballots."
Topics to be discussed include: Does the Constitution guarantee the right to vote? Are voting laws too restrictive, suppressing the vote in some communities? Are protections against voter fraud strong enough to maintain integrity in our elections?
