CSPG hosts a panel of three election administration professionals to discuss current and future policies to ensure that voter verification is accurate, accessible, equitable, and feasible.
There is a common refrain that in an ideal election it is easy to vote and hard to cheat. Signature verification has been the gold standard of remote voter identity verification for decades. Technological innovation creates new opportunities and challenges.
This webinar will explore current policies and future options for states and localities to ensure that voter verification is accurate, accessible, equitable, and feasible. Panelists will consider the benefits and drawbacks of signature matching, personal identification number requirements, photo identification requirements, third party identity verification, and step-up verification systems.
