Running an Election in a Pandemic with Professor Mara Suttmann-Lea
Every election year thousands of state and local election officials across the country are faced with the task of ensuring fair and equitable access to voting and a secure election process. Doing so during a global health pandemic, however, creates an extraordinary set of challenges for these stewards of democracy. In this lecture and discussion, Professor Mara Suttmann-Lea, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government, lays out the major challenges to running elections and voting during a global health pandemic, highlighting the promises and challenges of voting by mail, the need for a new generation of poll workers, and the essential role played by non-partisan voter education and outreach during the 2020 election cycle.
