The National Association of Women Judges is a proud co-sponsor of the Illinois State Bar Association's upcoming voting rights seminar "Our Elusive Right to Vote." The program is the brainchild of its Administrative Law Section Council, on which District 8 Director Judge Ann Breen-Grceo serves.
The semimar aims to increase understanding of the right to vote as the country approaches another contentious election. The full-day seminar will examine the history of the right to vote, barriers to exercising the right to vote, disenfranchisement of certain voting blocks, outside interference with the electoral process, and other voter suppression efforts and techniques.
