As the 2012 presidential election draws near, one thing is certain:  many eligible voters will have trouble casting ballots on Election Day.  Voting is at the heart of our democracy, yet our voting system remains deeply flawed.  A number of prominent civil rights and public interest groups are leading non-partisan, efforts to ensure that every eligible voter can vote and that every proper vote is counted.
This program will explore elections and the legal issues that surround them, which are fertile ground for lawyers, law firms, and legal departments looking to develop or expand their pro bono practice.  Pro bono lawyers have roles to play at all levels of the election protection and reform processes on Election Day and year-round.  The discussion will include emerging issues, how to get started, opportunities for collaboration, and opportunities for involvement that range from litigation and legal research to policy advocacy and system reform.
