Democracy Forum. What's At Stake in Moore v. Harper? -- Gerrymandering and More

WERU 89.9 FM
Friday, October 21, 2022
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

We'll have a conversation on Moore v. Harper. Many legal scholars say that the Supreme Court’s decision on this case and the Independent State Legislature Theory could be one of the most important election law cases for the future of federal elections. If adopted by the Court, the most extreme versions of the theory could destabilize elections. It remains to be seen if any version of this contentious theory will be adopted or if it will be rejected entirely. We'll talk about this issue and some of the potential implications of the case to be decided in the upcoming term.

Special Guests:

  • Derek T. Muller, Ben V. Willie Professor in Excellence at the University of Iowa College of Law
  • Eliza Sweren-Becker, counsel in the Voting Rights & Elections Program at the Brennan Center for Justice
