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.

This event is sponsored by the Public Interest/Public Service program at the University of Oregon School of Law, along with the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics.

The Law School Commons referred to below is the "Knight Law Center" of the University of Oregon at 1515 Agate Street. Room 175 is also called the "commons" or the "auditorium room". Parking can be tricky, but usually available in the
neighborhoods to the south and east of the University. Best to ride bicycles or come early to allow time to walk the last few blocks from your car to the center.
