Abstract

Even before the polls closed Nov. 3, President Donald Trump’s campaign filed lawsuits challenging the acceptance of absentee and early votes, as well as asking that vote counting be stopped. Now, Attorney General William Barr has allowed U.S. attorneys to “pursue substantial allegations” of voter fraud before the results of the 2020 presidential election are certified. This panel of legal experts will examine election law in pivotal states and assess the merits of ongoing challenges to the voting process and results.
