Election 2020: Setting Expectations and Debunking Myths
Organizer: R Street Institute
The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted American life in many ways and will certainly also impact the 2020 election. In fact, in order to socially distance and avoid unnecessary contact with others, record-shattering numbers of Americans may vote absentee.
The specter of an election relying heavily on absentee voting has brought with it many misconceptions, myths and simple misunderstandings. People fear that absentee voting is rife with fraud, and they're concerned that we may not know who won the election on election night, week or perhaps even month.
Join R Street's Marc Hyden, James B. McClatchy Professor of Law at Stanford Law School Nate Persily, Senior Counsel for the Brennan Center's Democracy Program Liz Howard and Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman as they set some expectations and debunk myths surrounding the 2020 election cycle in our upcoming webinar.
