Getting Out the Vote
America's electoral process has been in the news quite a bit since early April, with many presidential primaries postponed or even canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With 16 of those now scheduled for the next two and a half months — 12 in June alone — it remains to be seen how each state, not to mention each voter, will proceed in these uncertain times. While the American electoral system is unlikely to be overhauled right now, many are casting a newly critical eye upon it. Given all that, it's worth noting that there are varied electoral systems in use all over the world — many with higher voter registration, better turnout, and generally more trusted practices than we have in the U.S. What are those countries doing right, and could the U.S. eventually adopt those practices?
