Election Meltdown: Richard L. Hasen with Kristen Clarke
- This is a past program
Voter suppression, incompetent election administration, foreign and domestic misinformation campaigns, inflammatory rhetoric—in his new book, Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, and the Threat to American Democracy, UC Irvine law professor Richard L. Hasen uses riveting stories to illustrate four factors contributing to distrust in the fairness and accuracy of US elections. Hasen and Kristen Clarke, executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, discuss what it will take to restore trust in US elections before the democratic process is completely undermined. Moderated by UCLA law professor Adam Winkler.
