CANCELLED: Re-Drawing the Lines:
Planning for the Next Decade of Election Reforms

Rutgers University has announced the cancellation of all public events on university campuses effective March 12th through April 15th.  Unfortunately, this means that the March 24th conference, Re-Drawing the Lines: Planning for the Next Decade of Election Reforms, is cancelled. We know the decision to cancel campus events was not made lightly but is the best option for ensuring the safety of community members. We regret any inconvenience this will cause and appreciate your support.

We are exploring options to offer some of the program sessions as webinars in the next couple of months; more details to come soon.

Thank you for understanding and please visit our “Attend an Event” page to stay informed about EIP’s upcoming events and Rutgers’ COVID-19 information website for the latest university-wide updates.
