This podcast examines American elections, how they work, and how accurate they are at this time of unprecedented questioning about their reliability. With over 30 percent of Americans doubting the accuracy of US elections, this series will examine all sides of the issue, from the institution of voting and why it matters in a democracy to the arguments on whether elections are rigged or accurate.

In the runup to the 2022 midterm elections, Hoover fellow and host Benjamin Ginsberg will interview those directly involved in elections and the study of elections to explain how votes are cast, counted, and certified; how partisans across the political spectrum use this process for their own advantage; and improvements that need to be made to keep our democracy functioning.
