November 3 promises to be one of the most consequential dates in U.S. history as America turns out to elect their next president. However, it is the days and weeks following the election that may prove the most informative and critical for our country. Amid the pandemic, millions of mail-in ballots are likely to delay the final results of the election, and how they’re counted and certified will prove a major point of contention. What’s more, questions around election integrity are inevitable as a result of foreign efforts to influence our election. The U.S. public’s reaction to the initial uncertainty and to the ultimate election outcome will surely complicate this picture even further. Please join us as we discuss the likelihood of these outcomes, and make predictions on what to expect both on and after November 3.
