U.S. Election Security

November 10, 2020

Episode Notes:

The 2020 U.S. elections are now over — for the most part. It took several days after Nov. 3 to confirm that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the election for president and vice-president. For his part, President Donald Trump has refused to concede and threatens litigation in key battleground states, which are still tabulating votes. Threats to the integrity of the election from outside powers — specifically Russia, China, and Iran — were a key concern going into last week.
