September 12: DC - Integrity or Intimidation?: Voter Challengers and Election Day Observer

On September 12, the American Constitution Society will host a panel discussion on the issues and interests surrounding voter challengers and Election Day observers. Where is the line between acceptable poll watching and voter intimidation? What are the rights of poll watchers, and do they conflict with the right of voters? What kinds of voter challenges does the law allow, and should it allow more or less? Does the possibility of voter fraud justify the risk of voter intimidation that such challenges create? Join us as a panel of experts discusses these and other issues that will arise as the November election approaches.
