Panelists scheduled to participate include David Becker, Director of Election Initiatives at the Pew Charitable Trusts; Commissioner Matthew Masterson of the Election Assistance Commission; Donald Palmer, Senior Adviser on Election Administration at the Bipartisan Policy Center and former chief elections administrator in Virginia and Florida; and Allegra Chapman, Director of Voting and Elections at Common Cause. Elizabeth Howard, Deputy Commissioner for the Virginia Department of Elections and William & Mary School of Law alumna will moderate.

"The United States is the world's oldest representative democracy, yet even amidst massive technological advances, we lack a single, accurate list of voters who comprise our electorate," explained Election Law Society Symposium Co-Chair Brandon Orewyler. "The symposium will ask the question of the proper role of citizens in policing the lists, the role of technology in enhancing voter list accuracy, and this country's surprising struggles with cross-state voter data sharing," Orewyler elaborated.

The event is set for March 17 at 3:30 PM at the William & Mary Law School in Room 120 with a reception to follow at 5:00 PM. The event is free and open to the public. This annual event is possible with generous assistance from the National Center for State Courts, the Election Law Program, and the Institute of Bill of Rights Law at William & Mary Law School.
