Voting in the Extraordinary 2020 Elections: What Worked for Voters, What Didn’t?


Tuesday, November 17, 2020, 12:00pm to 1:15pm


Virtual Event (Registration Required)

While it is way too early for a ‘retrospective’ given just how extraordinary this year’s election has been, we do now know a lot about the voting processes up to and including Election Day. The 2020 elections were a dramatic interplay of major procedural changes brought about as a result of COVID-19, multiple attempts to limit and discourage voting and a strong pushback against them, and extraordinary efforts to mobilize citizens to vote.  The Ash Center is glad to bring four deeply immersed leaders in these areas to share what they saw and what they know:

  • David Becker, Executive Director and Founder, Center for Election Innovation & Research
  • Alexis Anderson-Reed, CEO, State Voices
  • Kristen Clarke, President, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
  • Chiraag Bains, Director of Legal Strategies, Demos
  • Miles Rapoport (Moderator), Senior Practice Fellow in American Democracy, the Ash Center
