It is the final weekend before the 2020 Election comes to a close. With almost 80 million Americans already having voted in this election cycle, the candidates last minute mad dash across battleground states becomes important to an ever shrinking amount of undecided voters who have not cast ballots. Phillip M. Bailey talks with 2020 Elections editor Annah Aschbrenner about those final days of the campaign and a few Supreme Court decisions that will determine how long certain states can accept mail-in ballots that were postmarked on or before election day.

Also, Washington Bureau chief Susan Page takes a look at voter confidence on the counting of ballots with Robert Griffin of the Democracy Fund and finds that the sentiments over trust in our electoral system have little deviation, regardless of party affiliation and other demographics.

We take a voter question about funding inequities in K-12 education systems and how the presidential candidates proposed changes to education policy may alleviate or exacerbate those issues.

Finally, we discuss the young progressive voter movements on certain popular social media platforms that are urging folks to “Settle for Biden” even though they may have favored more progressive candidates in the Democratic primary.
