The Women in Learning and Leadership (WILL) Academic Program Presents “Better Ballot NJ: The Fight for Fair Elections”
Learn more about the undemocratic New Jersey ballot design and the effort to change it. The goal of the webinar is to educate New Jersey voters about the latest “county line” research and encourage more groups to support the Better Ballot resolution which aims to bring better ballots to the state.
Presenters will include Julia Sass Rubin, an esteemed Rutgers University professor who will present her research on how NJ’s primary ballot design gives an unfair advantage to party endorsed candidates, and Christine Conforti, a former candidate for NJ’s Fourth Congressional District who will provide her unique experience running on the county line for county committee and off the line for Congress. The discussion will be moderated by Megan Friedman, Brookdale Honors student, President of Students for Global Citizenship, and Executive Board Member of WILL+.
