Public forum on WI elections is scheduled for Monday, October 15. It will address critical issues of campaign finance reform, redistricting, public financing of state elections and voter id laws as they apply (and unfold) in our own state of Wisconsin. Our elected representatives (Sen. Hansen and Rep. Steineke) as well as our very own professors Mike Kraft and Dave Helpap will be part of the panel. These are all issues that received a lot of coverage in local and national press, have profound implications for US democracy and apply to college students in particular. The Forum is free and open to the university and greater Green Bay community.
When: Monday, October 15, 6:30-8:00PM
Where: Christie Theater in the University Union
