Secretary of State Husted to Serve as a Panelist at PEW Center on the States Post-Election Conference in Washington, D.C.

COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted will share his experiences and insights about serving as the chief elections official in a battleground state for the 2012 Presidential Election as part of a panel discussion sponsored by the nonpartisan PEW Center on the States. Secretary Husted’s panel will convene on Monday, December 10, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. in Washington, D.C.

Secretary Husted believes that all good election policy requires a balance between voter access and elections accuracy and integrity. Monday’s discussion, which will also feature West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant and Professor and Dean’s Fellow Michael J. Pitts of Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law, will provide an opportunity for Secretary Husted to discuss his ideas and recommendations for building a better system of elections before a national audience.  He’ll touch on challenges that elections officials face across the county, including aging voting equipment, federal involvement in state-run elections and his concerns about how partisanship has gotten in the way of needed election reforms.  The moderator of the panel is the Supreme Court correspondent for The New York Times Adam Liptak.

More than 250 political leaders, including elections officials, academics, media and advocates will be attending the PEW Conference, which runs from Monday, December 10, 2012, through Tuesday, December 11, 2012.
