Election Integrity Begins With Local Politics

About this Episode

An interesting shift in the debate over electoral politics happened following the 2020 election: Americans began to wonder if the results they were seeing at the polls were reflective of the collective will of the people. Discussions about election integrity followed, and the focus quickly shifted to local elections as a potential source of at least some of the disconnect. CRC's Research Director Mike Watson is an expert at watching the role union organizers and activists play in local and off-cycle elections, and he's written an as-yet-unpublished op-ed explaining how those entities' involvement in local politics can be extrapolated out to explain some of the election integrity concerns at the state and federal level, and the broader -- and frankly radical -- culture shifts Americans are experiencing today.
