1: Hacking American Elections: Why We’re Vulnerable, and How We Can Stop It

Nothing is more singularly significant in American government than the ritual of voting; if the electorate were to lose confidence in the integrity of our elections, it would be a tragedy. Yet, since allegations of hacking and manipulation surfaced during the 2016 election, just how much value a vote has in our system has been in doubt. Join Professor Paul Rosenzweig from The George Washington University Law School to unpack the infrastructure of our voting system and its vulnerabilities, the controversy surrounding the 2016 elections, and how we should respond to this grave threat to our democracy.
