how the coronavirus is testing our election system

I know that I’ve been talking about the coronavirus a lot, but my blog is largely impacted by current events, and the coronavirus gives me a lot to think and write about. You can click here to read my other posts about the coronavirus if you are interested in the politics and the social impacts of the virus. However, this post is going to focus and go in-depth on one of the topics I mentioned in those posts. Elections. Not just the elections but the recent changes, the state governments, and the voters themselves. If you have followed me on this blog for a while, you would know how passionate I am about voting and the election system (even though I can’t vote yet). It should be no surprise that I have more than a few thoughts on what’s happening to current elections amid the coronavirus and social distancing. As always, I will provide some articles and resources for more information at the end of the post and feel free to comment on your thoughts as well!

I know that I’ve been writing a lot about voting lately, but it’s because I have so much to say. Especially with this new experience, I want to share my thoughts and participation with the voting process. Let me know what other options I should discuss or if you want more voting things!

The Election is coming up! I know that I already did a post about voting, and I will definitely be doing more in the future, but a final reminder post would be good. Not only is this a reminder for everyone that is eligible to vote, it’s a resource page. I found a bunch of great resources that answer questions like what to bring on election day, where to go, how to decided who to vote for, etc. This post is a simplified guide to the basics of voting this Tuesday.
