Does My Vote Even Count? A Forum on Election Reform on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 5:30 pm to 7 pm at the Richland County Library Main Auditorium , 1431 Assembly Street, Columbia provides a chance to learn about Redistricting.
The forum panelists will include SC House Representatives Beth Bernstein, Gary Clary, Kirkman Finlay and Senator Mia S. McLeod of the State Senate, plus Dr. Duncan Buell, Professor of Computer Science at the University of South Carolina and recognized expert on voting technology and security and Dr. John Ruoff, a recognized authority on voting rights and redistricting in South Carolina.
These experts and legislators will address how proposed South Carolina legislation would require unbiased criteria and a non-partisan commission in charge of redrawing our state voting district lines after the 2020 census.
They will also discuss South Carolina’s purchase of a new voting system to replace the current aged out system — a new system that will ensure secure, accurate, transparent and verifiable elections.
