Will the 2020 election be compromised by foreign interference? Is voting by mail secure? Can American voters have faith in the integrity our electoral system? To answer these and related questions, I’m rebroadcasting a conversation that first aired in a series being produced by our colleagues in Governance Studies at Brookings. In it, Darrell West, vice president and director of Governance Studies, interviews Senior Fellow Elaine Kamarck and Fellow Chris Meserole to get their perspectives on these critical questions. Also on today’s show, Senior Fellow Sarah Binder discusses the coming confirmation battle over the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. What procedural tools do Senate Democrats have to slow or stop the process, and what powers can the Republican majority use to confirm her before the election?
