Panelists, including John Grinspan from the Museum of American History, Lynn Heidelbaugh from the National Postal Museum, and Duchess Harris from Macalester College, will discuss elections during pandemics in the past. They will examine “front porch” campaigns, voter turnout, U.S. mail capability, and historical traditions of voter suppression.
