Vote-by-Mail and Voter Turnout in the Pandemic Election
About the Program
Many states changed their policies to increase voting by mail and reduce the risk from COVID-19 during the 2020 election. In California, officials took extra steps to facilitate vote-by-mail and accommodate in-person voting. PPIC researcher Eric McGhee will present findings on how these policy shifts affected voter turnout in California and the nation.
