Opinion: Biden and Sanders should work together now to protect the election

Guaranteeing that the virus will not be used in the fall as a pretext to disrupt the election should be a key component of any broad stimulus bill. Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), along with election specialist Rick Hasen [Chancellor’s Professor] of the University of California at Irvine, have proposed that all states offer unrestricted absentee voting and mail-in ballots, with the effort funded by the federal government.
