Amer­ic­ans are increas­ingly ques­tion­ing the fair­ness and accur­acy of U.S. elec­tions. Law professor Richard L. Hasen exam­ines four sources of voters’ distrust: voter suppres­sion, poor elec­tion admin­is­tra­tion, dirty polit­ical tricks, and inflam­mat­ory claims of “stolen” elec­tions. Hasen’s new book, Elec­tion Melt­down: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to Amer­ican Demo­cracy, proposes steps to restore voters’ confid­ence ahead of the 2020 elec­tion.

Richard L. Hasen, Chan­cel­lor’s Professor of Law and Polit­ical Science, Univer­sity of Cali­for­nia, Irvine; author of Elec­tion Melt­down: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to Amer­ican Demo­cracy
