On March 26, 2020 the nonpartisan National Task Force on Election Crises released the COVID-19 Election Guide to help state and local policy makers and election officials maximize the opportunity for all eligible voters to cast their votes without undue risk to their own health and to have those votes counted. The guide offers recommendations to help election officials plan for and conduct a successful 2020 general election despite the many challenges that the coronavirus is likely to pose.
The mission of the nonpartisan National Task Force on Election Crises is to ensure a free and fair 2020 general election by recommending responses to a range of potential election crises. The Task Force does not advocate for any electoral outcome except an election that is free and fair. The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law‘s Kristen Clarke, president and executive director and Ezra Rosenberg, co-director of the Voting Rights Project, are members of this Task Force.
