While voter rights have steadily expanded, voter suppression and vote dilution have also increased. Requiring voter ID, gerrymandering, felony disenfranchisement and other limitations on voters make it difficult for communities to develop and sustain political will, particularly with respect to local issues like school finance. A number of strategies, formal and informal, have emerged to right this trend. In addition to the critical issues, discussion will focus on challenges in researching new civics initiatives intended to engage the citizenry and build political will.
