Sen. Amy Klobuchar – Minnesota Nice
Join the IOP as we welcome U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (JD’85) for a conversation with IOP Director David Axelrod on how COVID-19 will affect the infrastructure of American elections in November and beyond. With no guarantee that polling places will be safe enough to allow all eligible Americans to vote in-person in November, Senator Klobuchar has emerged as the leading proponent for national mail-in voting. Her bill, The Natural Disaster and Emergency Ballot Act, establishes a new standard of voting in cases of natural disaster or infectious disease, laying a roadmap for the expansion and protection of voting rights in times of crisis.
