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.
