Why do we need “I Voted” stickers and “Get Out the Vote” campaigns? Scholar Liette Gedlow examines the American struggle of low voter turnout. Gidlow has published The Big Vote, which analyzes how 1920s turnout campaigns helped contain the radical potential of women’s suffrage, and Obama, Clinton, Palin, a collection of essays by top-ranking historians. Her next book, The Nineteenth Amendment and the Politics of Race, 1920-1970, uncovers connections between women’s suffrage and the Black Freedom movements of the ’50s and ’60s. Cost is $10 for members; $15 for nonmembers; students with ID, $5.

March 11, 7 pm-8 pm. At the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, Denver.
