In 'Election Meltdown,' A Legal Scholar Details The Threat To Our Voting System


With the 2020 presidential election upon us, election scholars are now predicting several dire scenarios. Along with the threat of Russian hackers, some are now worried that should President Trump lose, he may refuse to concede. Legal scholar Richard Hasen points to four dangers threatening the voting process in 2020 in his book Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to American Democracy.

These problems cause voters to distrust the fairness and accuracy of our elections.

Richard Hasen will engage in an interactive conversation with the University of Cincinnati College of Law Dean Verna Williams on Sept. 17 from 12:15-1:15 p.m. on the Resilience of Our Electoral System. They will discuss issues of voter suppression and foreign interference in elections.

University of California, Irvine School of Law Chancellor's Professor of Law and Political Science Richard Hasen, Ph.D., joins Cincinnati Edition ahead of the talk to discuss his book Election Meltdown.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
