How can we run fair and safe elections in the time of social distancing? Diane talks with Ohio State University election law professor Edward Foley.
Even before the debacle in Iowa, law professor Rick Hasen has been sounding the alarm about the problems with our voting systems.
There are the real threats such as cyberattacks and human incompetence. And then there are the manufactured ones like persistent – and false — accusations of voter fraud.
Hasen argues these risks, both legitimate and perceived, are working to undermine the faith in our country’s ability to hold a free and fair election. His new book is titled, “Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat To American Democracy.”
- Richard Hasen Professor of law and political science, University of California, Irvine; author of "Election Meltdown" and "The Voting Wars"
