Coronavirus Fears Could Depress Voter Turnout In Coming Primaries

Congress should act now in order to prepare state voting systems, University of California, Irvine law professor Rick Hasen said. “If we think of the country as at war with coronavirus right now, as part of the war effort we should put plans in place to insure that voters may cast their ballots easily and freely in November,” Hasen wrote in Slate on Friday. “If Congress does not act, millions of people who live in states without no-excuse absentee balloting face the risk of disenfranchisement.”
