Abstract:
On the eve of the US election, this seminar will explore the impact of the pandemic on voting methods and electoral administration across a range of democracies. With a particular focus on the rise of remote voter participation, it will analyse how mechanisms such as mail-in and on-line voting are changing the electoral landscape and what legacy these may have for trust in the electoral process post-COVID-19.
