I’ll be speaking on the role of religion in politics as part of the University of Iowa Public Policy Center‘s popular public forum series, “What If…”
This week’s topic: “What if everyone voted?“
The University of Iowa Public Policy Center invites you to join us for a series of public forums where our researchers will examine different hypothetical scenarios and their unintended consequences, and present their relevant research.
The last event in this series asks, “What if everyone voted?” Full voter turnout would have myriad consequences for our electoral system, political campaigns, and representation by government officials. Experts will provide thought-provoking reflections on this scenario in order to spur further discussion.
Title: What If…Everyone Voted?
When: Tuesday, April 29th, 2014, 7:00-8:30 PM
Where: Iowa City Public Library, Meeting Room A
Topics raised will include:
- questions about campaign contributions and potential changes to campaign strategies
- election reform
- presidential nominations (including the Iowa Caucus)
- election administration, costs, benefits, and other factors
- the role of religion in politics
- effects on public policy and the role of political/social inequality
Come for an evening to ponder what really would happen if everyone actually voted.
This series of events is co-sponsored in kind by:
