With the 2020 US Presidential Election soon behind us, many Americans are left with doubts about what the future holds for election procedures and voting rights. Absentee and mail-in ballots are now a topic of controversy, while online voting has become a possibility. Interest in voter fraud has emerged, as have concerns about poll watchers. What will be in store for voters in 2024?
In this practical webinar, you will explore what Americans have learned for future elections and analyze various predictions for what elections may look like in the years beyond. You will also explore current election procedures, such as Maine’s 2nd Choice Voting and the selection of electors by state legislatures, as well as issues surrounding these procedures. Finally, you will discuss voter fraud and related issues, including double voting and vote harvesting.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
- Identify various voting procedures in the election process, their pros and cons, and what can be done to improve
- Specify ways to make voter identification universal to prevent marginalization and discrimination
- Assess the benefits of uniform legislations for election procedures, including voting processes, ballots, and recount processes
- Define the pros and cons of simplifying the presidential election ballot, including separating candidates from referenda votes, or providing both a federal and a combined state and local ballots
- Determine what voter rights and election procedures may look like in the future
