How COVID-19 will Shape the 2020 Election

5/27/2020; 62 minutes

The COVID-19 pandemic has already had a deep impact on the 2020 presidential election, from a battle over when to hold the Wisconsin primary to the postponement of other primaries and even the Democratic convention. In the months ahead, it will shape every facet of the contest: the issues, the mechanics of campaigns, how candidates engage the voters, and ultimately, how we cast our ballots. A panel of Berkeley political scientists and election experts discuss election law and security, voter participation, and how COVID-19 may permanently change how America votes. Panelists: Sarah Anzia, Professor, Goldman School of Public Policy; Henry E. Brady, Dean, Goldman School of Public Policy; Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean, Berkeley Law; Bertrall Ross, Professor, Berkeley Law; Philip Stark, Professor, Department of Statistics
