Hearing to Focus on Voting in New England
The commission is expected to hear from voters, community leaders and election officials. The hearing will be held Monday at Suffolk University Law School.
The Boston event is the 11th of a series of nationwide hearings being held to gather testimony on the current landscape of voting and elections in the U.S. The testimony is expected to cover several topics, including voting changes, voter registration and access to the ballot for communities of color and people with disabilities.
