Securing the 2020 Election during a Pandemic

July 28, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm
Zoom Webinar

How can we ensure that Americans can vote safely during the COVID pandemic? Would voting by mail confer an advantage to either major political party? How would vote-by-mail affect turnout, and would it increase the risk of voter fraud? Would voters trust new procedures for election administration, and would those without mail-in options feel safe enough to vote in person on Election Day?   Michael Tomz, Director of the Stanford Center for American Democracy and Professor of Political Science at Stanford University, will moderate a discussion of these questions and other issues posed by the upcoming elections. Joining Tomz in conversation are:

  • Adam Bonica, Associate Professor of Political Science at Stanford University
  • Andrew B. Hall, Professor of Political Science at Stanford University
  • Nathaniel Persily, James B. McClatchy Professor of Law at the Stanford Law School
  • Lynn Vavreck, Marvin Hoffenberg Professor of American Politics and Public Policy at UCLA
