Voters in Orange County have blamed the press, pandemic and politicians for a growing skepticism of the 2020 election.
Election and law enforcement officials say regardless of their personal feelings and political leanings they have a sworn duty to uphold their respective offices – which includes preserving the security of each individual vote.
Still voters listed everything from voter fraud to the voter suppression; election hacking to bias in the media; UC Irvine Election Law Professor Rick Hasen says all of this growing distrust in the electoral process is caused by four factors: crazy laws that make a partisan country hate itself more, foreign hacking and interference, extreme focus on a small percentage of election administration mistakes and political rhetoric – where BOTH sides continue to claim the whole process is rigged.
And if you listen now we’ll throw in a bonus factor because the entire 2020 Election Process has been shaken up and dumped out during a pandemic.
Part VII will listen to the voters and examine those factors to see if there is any way we will all make it to the other side of the 2020 Election.
