1:15 - 2:45 p.m. - Redistricting After 2020 Census
Following completion of the 2020 census, California will review and adjust district boundaries. AB 849 makes significant changes to the process that cities which elect their council by districts will need to follow. This presentation will discuss newly enacted legislation, AB 849, that completely revamps the rules of redistricting—both substantive and procedural—for cities and counties.

3:00 - 4:15 p.m - Elections Security
In 2002, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was granted responsibility for promoting the security and resilience of “critical infrastructure” (systems that if incapacitated would have a debilitating impact on national security), but not regulatory authority over “election infrastructure” (e.g., polling places, voter registration databases, voting systems, etc.). The federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC), created by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), has provided a broad range of assistance to states in implementing HAVA requirements, and researching issues in election administration. Following the series of cyber attacks during the 2016 election, DHS designated the election infrastructure used in federal elections as a component of U.S. critical infrastructure. Although conducting elections is solely the responsibility of states and localities, this session will explore the status of election security efforts and challenges facing federal, state and local election officials.
