Summary
"In the wake of the 2020 covid-19 public health crisis, U.S. governors have taken on a new leadership role. Under federalism, state governments have led the fight to limit the spread of the disease with policies ranging from banning large gatherings, to closing schools, restaurants and bars, and non-essential businesses-profoundly changing daily routines and the economy. But before the health crisis state governments were leading the way in making it easier to vote in elections in an effort to strengthen democratic government. This book explores the wide variation across states in convenience voting methods-absentee/mail voting, in-person early voting, same day registration-and provides new empirical analysis of the beneficial effects of these policies, not only in increasing voter turnout overall, but for disadvantaged groups"--
