In June 2017, Michigan Engineering Professor J. Alex Halderman testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about the vulnerability of the country's voting systems, having studied and tested such systems for more than a decade.

In this panel discussion, Halderman and LSA Professor Walter Mebane, an expert on detecting electoral fraud, address election security.

Former Knight-Wallace Fellow Steve Friess moderates the event, including a Q&A that follows the panel discussion. Light hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served.
