As we approach the final weeks of the election campaign, Secretaries of State – particularly in swing states – face tremendous pressures as they fulfill their responsibilities to provide a smooth, inclusive, and safe election that delivers a trusted result. The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation is privileged to bring together a bipartisan group of secretaries from the key swing states of Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. They will discuss the challenges they are facing, the pressures they are under, and what they are doing to make the November elections work for the citizens of their states.
This event is co-sponsored by the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School.
Jocelyn Benson, Secretary of State, Michigan
Kathy Boockvar, Secretary of the Commonwealth, Pennsylvania
Frank LaRose, Secretary of State, Ohio
