Professor explores ways to have a fair election in November

Rick Hasen of the University of California, Irvine and author of “Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust and the Threat to American Democracy,” put together an ad hoc committee of experts for recommendations on how to have a fair election in November, and he’s with me to talk about those suggestions. … “I would say now in light of the pandemic that the changes we recommend as to absentee balloting are the most important. Part of that is about election administrators being prepared for the flood of absentee ballots and get those ballots ready for processing on election day and to count them in a fair and relatively quick manner, but also for the media. … So I think all of us have a responsibility to make sure that we’re not spreading misinformation.”
