Despite the doubt and difficulty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the November 2020 general election occurred successfully. More Americans voted in this election cycle than in any other in the country’s history and turnout reached its highest rate in more than 100 years. Crisis averted? Perhaps not. Madison Imiola, Peter Finn, and Rob Ledger explore the ongoing influence of COVID-19 on US elections and how the pandemic could cause difficulties for voting, potentially for years to come.
