On Friday, October 21st, Common Cause is holding the 2005 Southwest Election Reform Conference in Estes Park, Colorado. The conference agenda includes an opening plenary session, where I will be one of the speakers, followed by a set of workshops on policy, grassroots activity, and collaboration. After a networking lunch, there is going to be a set of meetings regarding how the states in the Southwest can move forward with election reforms in their individual states.
I think that the conference has the potential to accomplish quite a bit for moving election reform forward in the Southwest, especially since it is designed to promote an open and free dialogue about the key issues. If you are going to be in Colorado next week, Estes Park could be the place to be!
