Vote-By-Mail: Protecting the Ballot during COVID-19

Join Eagleton for this special session exploring how we can effectively transition the processes and practices of politics to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19—most especially the continuity of elections.

Secretary of State Kim Wyman, Washington State

Charles Stewart III, Kenan Sahin Distinguished Professor of Political Science, MIT
