Broken Democracy: Election Challenges and Consequences During COVID-19

6:00–7:00 pm
Zoom Webinar


Professor Stephanopoulos will provide an overview of the 2020 election and how it will be carried out during the greatest health crisis in a generation. During this episode the audience will learn how the U.S. plans to execute the election and make democracy work in 2020.  Professor Stephanopoulos will discuss how overseas interference, misinformation, gerrymandering and voter suppression affects the election process, even today.  He will also address how “big money” from a variety of interest groups and the Presidential debate system play a role in the U.S. democratic system and elections.  Finally, the Professor will project how the outcome of this election could change how the U.S. will enact foreign policy, immigration policy, constitutional law and the varied implications on the Supreme Court and race relations.
