A week after the election, we may or may not know the final results of the presidential contest, but we will have learned a lot about democracy in action. What were the challenges and opportunities with election administration during this unique year? How did voters engage in the democratic process in spite of a global pandemic? Have we maintained public confidence in the integrity of our elections?

Join us for a roundtable conversation that examines the election experience, through the eyes of election administrators, journalists, and WashU community members.
