Methods to increase voter turnout are being successfully employed by some states.At the same time other states are apparently trying to decrease turnout by introducing security measures to combat supposed fraudulent voting.
In this course, you will be exposed toa short history of attaining the vote, and learn about the roadblocks to the right to vote in the past. You will also learn about new innovations in the voting process and about the efforts in place to protect and ensure the accuracy of the vote. You will then join a conversation about how to further safeguard elections from being hacked.
