  • Worst Case Scenarios 2020
    Date: September 30, 2020
    Location:
    Category: Panel Discussion

    Any number of scenarios in November could lead to electoral uncertainty. What would happen if the parties disagree about who won the election and send competing slates of electors to Congress? Or what if the electors act “faithlessly” and vote for a candidate who didn’t win their state? Consider, too, a scenario where neither Donald Trump nor Joe Biden gets an absolute majority in the electoral college. Or what happens if one of the candidates dies or gets sick after the election but before the electoral college votes are counted? To answer these and many other questions, join John Fortier, director of BPC’s Democracy Project and author of After the People Vote and Ned Foley, professor of law at Moritz College and author of Ballot Battles. When: Sept. 30; 3pm Eastern.

  • Will the Election be Legit
    Date: September 18, 2020
    Location:
    Category: Panel Discussion

    There are very real threats to our elections in November. A great deal of misinformation is spreading, and voters do not know where to look for trusted information. Increases in by-mail voting and safety concerns about voting in polling places have led to confusion about the best options to vote. All of these changes will likely lead to slower results reporting and the possibility of one or both parties dismissing official totals as fraudulent or illegitimate.  Please join The Bipartisan Policy Center as we discuss what’s fact and what’s fiction, and what we can still do to maintain the integrity of our elections this November. Featured Participants: Donna Brazile, Michael Steele, and Laurel Lee, Florida Secretary of State. Moderated by: Steve Scully. political editor, C-SPAN. When: September 18 2pm Eastern. Where: Online.
