In an event recorded last Thursday at the University of Auckland entitled The US Election 2020: A Crisis of legitimacy?, a panel of lecturers, Timothy Kuhner, Maria Armoudian, Danny Osborne and Scott Optican use the lenses of law, political science, and psychology to explain this contested election and discuss the implications of the final outcome.
Was the 2020 US election conducted properly? Will mail-in ballots be counted and will that count be allowed to stand? Will the US Supreme Court decide the final outcome? And what, in any case, will become of American democracy?
