“I’m worried about large numbers of voters being disenfranchised, through no fault of their own, because it’s not safe to vote. You have expanded vote-by-mail for people afraid to vote in public. But what if the mail system collapses? … So we need to have in-person voting, and that needs to be safe, or as safe as possible. Preparations need to happen right now. … Lots needs to happen now that wouldn’t ordinarily have to happen quite so early.” — Rick Hasen, professor of law and political science at UC-Irvine and author of “Election Meltdown,” as told to POLITICO Magazine’s Zack Stanton.
