Idaho Law Review: Symposium

Democracy Evolved: The Future of American Elections

Election Law Symposium by the Idaho Law Review and the McClure Center for Public Policy Research

In 1870, the 15th Amendment was ratified, formally prohibiting vote denial on the basis of race. In 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, prohibiting vote denial on the basis of sex. In the 1960s, the Supreme Court established the one-person-one-vote-principle and Congress enacted the Voting Rights Act. In 2000, the Supreme Court decided the presidential election in Bush v. Gore. In 2016, the country experienced one of the most controversial and polarizing elections in modern history. On the eve of the 2020 election, we examine American democracy and ask: Where are we now, and where might we be - 4 years, 20 years, 50 years, 100 years, or even 150 years from now? Learn more through the following FREE discussions (Idaho CLE pending):
