BOSTON (AP) - The National Commission on Voting Rights will hold a hearing in Boston to hear testimony on challenges, successes and opportunities for reform in all aspects of voting in New England.

The commission is expected to hear from voters, community leaders and election officials. The hearing will be held Monday at Suffolk University Law School.

The Boston event is the 11th of a series of nationwide hearings being held to gather testimony on the current landscape of voting and elections in the U.S. The testimony is expected to cover several topics, including voting changes, voter registration and access to the ballot for communities of color and people with disabilities.

The hearing was organized by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and its local affiliate in Boston.
