ABSTRACT

Protecting Public Health in the 2020 Elections   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has gripped the United States and revealed tragic vulnerabilities in our institutions--particularly the health care system. As we ramp up to the November 2020 presidential election, COVID-19 has shown our voting system to be similarly fragile. Chaotic primary elections in Wisconsin, Georgia and elsewhere demonstrate that we must do more to protect the ability to vote safely. This report analyzes medical and political science data and applies it to voting during the pandemic. It also outlines steps that the United States must take to ensure safe and secure elections this year."
