Inspired by 19th and 20th century suffragists fight for women’s suffrage, today the fight continues to keep the franchise and universal adult suffrage. What are impediments that keep eligible voters from exercising their franchise? What can be done to overcome barriers and encourage broader participation as we look to the November 2 election? How will the logistics of mail balloting impact equity and access?
