National Democracy Slam 2015 Registration

April 22nd, 9 am - 5:30 pm at the Washington College of Law

National Democracy Slam 2015 is a day-long conference that will explore 17 bold ideas for breaking partisan gridlock, ending gerrymandering, and improving America's elections and politics. The conference will feature leading electoral reform thinkers and policy makers.

NBC's Chuck Todd will moderate the final "Democracy Slam" with a high-powered panel, and Congressmen Mark Pocan and John Sarbanes will make keynote speeches. Other speakers and judges of the Slam include scholars Jamie Raskin, Norm Ornstein, William Galston, Jennifer Lawless and John Fortier, former Congressman Mickey Edwards, journalists Aaron Blake (Washington Post's The Fix) and Melinda Henneberger (Bloomberg News) and reformers with Advancement Project, American Constitution Society, Brennan Center, Brookings Institution, Center for Competitive Politics, Common Cause, Democracy Fund, Demos, FairVote, National Popular Vote and Public Citizen.

The conference will also present attendees with plenty of opportunities to engage with the reforms via a live polling system that will be used throughout the day. Since the conference is being broadcast via webcast, both in-person and online attendees will have an opportunity to weigh in on each of the 17 electoral reforms that are discussed, with real-time results for each poll. 

Check out a detailed agenda of the day's events.

Conference papers will be posted on the Democracy Slam 2015 web-app by April 17.
