Election challenges of 2020
Registration opens at 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19
By mid-August, more than 160 lawsuits were filed across the country in an attempt to shape the rules of the November 2020 election, an election that will be held in the midst of a pandemic.
Both parties are exploring ways to change the face of the election. Various issues will be discussed from both parties’ points of view. Complicating the problem is the prediction that results may not be known for weeks. And the war on words will only escalate as Election Day draws closer.
Joshua Sellers, an associate professor of law at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU, specializes in constitutional and election law. He will review the unprecedented challenges this election faces at 10 a.m. Monday, October 19.
Not only will the election determine who will occupy the White House and the makeup of Congress, he says, but at the state level, the results will determine how the redistricting process will proceed as required after each census.
