Coronavirus Won’t Stop GOP Voter Suppression

Wisconsin’s primary may have impacted November’s election.


Episode Notes

Virginia Heffernan talks to Mother Jones senior reporter Ari Berman about the 2020 presidential primary vote in Wisconsin, disenfranchised voters, and a glance back at Jim Crow laws. They also discuss why there’s ever any argument against mail-in votes and the ways coronavirus could negatively impact the process of voting in the presidential election—perhaps for the better.
