Election Calendar

The coronavirus pandemic is reshaping the 2020 elections, as states push back their voting dates and candidates’ ability to campaign in person is restricted. Many states have delayed or altered their primaries, increasing their reliance on mail-in ballots. The way tens of millions of people will vote has already changed, in red and blue states alike, as the president has raised unfounded doubts about the security of mail voting. Trump has been raising the specter of voting fraud for years.
