Former Green Party Presidential Candidate to Speak at School of Law Wednesday, October 24

David Cobb, an attorney who was the Green Party’s candidate in the 2004 presidential election, will speak at the University of Oregon School of Law on Wednesday evening, October 24, at 7:00 p.m. in room 175. This event is open to the general public free of charge.

Cobb will discuss systemic problems in the electoral process. He will address a provocative topic: “How Fair and Open Are Elections in the United States?” Cobb will discuss the role that attorneys and other citizens can play in ensuring fairness and encouraging widespread participation in elections.

Cobb was prominent in advocating for a recount of Ohio’s ballots in the 2004 presidential election. He continues his work for election reform as a fellow with the Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution.
