The 2020 U.S. Elections: A Test for Voting Rights, Free Speech, and Democracy
Through good times and bad, war and peace, economic prosperity and calamity, civil disorder and calm, the United States has maintained confidence in its democratic values and its unique electoral process throughout its history. That confidence has been shaken this year, however, by evidence of voter suppression, online misinformation and disinformation, and international inference, and by questions about the ability of the U.S. Postal Service to handle mail-in ballots during a public health emergency.
Join Deborah Turner, president of the League of Women Voters; Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice; Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project; and Amy Gardner, a national political reporter at The Washington Post, as they examine these issues – and whether the American public will be able to have confidence in this year’s election results — at a virtual forum moderated by Sanford J. Ungar, director of the Free Speech Project at Georgetown University, on Wednesday, September 23.
