The 2020 US presidential election cycle comes to an end at the start of November. Concerns of voter suppression and delay tactics, and a sharp increase in the number of mail-in voters, mean that a prolonged ballot count is likely.
The coronavirus pandemic has added an extra layer of concern with many states implementing last-minute legislation to accommodate social distancing measures. How is election night likely to unfold and what will be the key states and developments to watch?
What impact is the ongoing health crisis having on voters’ ability to cast their ballots? How are concerns of voter suppression being addressed? What are the key issues and concerns in voters’ minds as they prepare to cast their ballots? And how is the international community preparing for a crucial few weeks in American politics?
Held in collaboration with Chatham House’s US and the Americas Programme, this webinar is part of a series of events looking at key issues facing voters in the 2020 US elections.
