Did you know that Texas is one of the most difficult states in the nation in which to register to vote? Join us as we discuss the evolution of voting in American democracy. Technology is making our lives more socially connected and creating better opportunities for people to prosper. But is it making our democracy stronger or weakening the ties that make our communities special? We will explore how technology can help strengthen our elections through recent innovations such as online voter registration and many others.
