Sen. Klobuchar & Sen. Wyden to Discuss COVID-19 Election Priorities at Common Cause Town Hall

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) joined Common Cause experts and members, and journalists in a town hall webinar to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on this year’s elections and the preparations that must be made, and precautions taken, to safeguard our democracy.

Panelists focused on the importance of additional congressional funding for states as they face unprecedented hurdles in holding elections and why states should expand vote-by-mail opportunities, no excuse absentee ballots, and other methods to safeguard public health while at the same time maintaining sufficient in-person voting opportunities for those who need it.

You will learn more about how you can help in the fight to defend our democracy in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic and how they can work with Common Cause and their elected representatives to help ensure that every eligible voter is able to cast their ballots freely and safely.
