SUMMARY: In this episode of Democracy Matters, students in our Elections 2020 class interview Chris Piper, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Elections, about how the pandemic has affected election administration this year; historic levels of absentee and early voting; partnering with federal agencies and other states to combat foreign interference; and how litigation will affect when we know election results.


How has the pandemic affected states and localities this election and their ability to process ballots? What are Departments of Elections doing to ensure safe, secure but accessible voting and how are they collaborating with federal government agencies and with partners at the state and federal level? How will all the pending litigation affect when we know the results of the election? What should the public expect regarding the timing of when we know election results? 

In this episode of Democracy Matters, students in our Elections 2020 class interview Chris Piper, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Elections, to discuss these questions and more.
