The necessities of life in a pandemic have highlighted the vulnerabilities of our elections systems across the county, even if many of those issues have existed long before 2020. Washington State's vote-by-mail system allows greater access and participation as well as no need to wait in line while keeping a healthy distance, but other states are scrambling to catch up. What can be done here in Washington, as well as nationally, to improve the accessibility, security, and trustworthiness of our elections? What role can businesses play in supporting access to democracy? What would it take to help create a democracy that looks more like the people it serves?

PANELISTS
George Cheung - Director, More Equitable Democracy
Sean Meloy - Senior Political Director, LGBTQ Victory Fund

In this monthly series, GSBA will bring together GSBA members, candidates, campaign leaders, and political experts to talk about the big issues that can be influenced at the ballot box in coming months.
