What is it?
- Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden has announced that he will start to host in person events in key battleground states following Labor Day. The Biden-Harris campaign has made it clear that events will be in adherence with the CDC, state and local social distancing guidelines.
- President Donald Trump’s campaign for reelection has continuously held in person events and has recently pivoted to smaller events instead of large-scale rallies. Recently, some delegates for the Republican National Convention met in Charlotte, NC to cast their ballots in person.
Why is it important?
- Currently, both campaigns are working to find the balance between getting their message out to the voters and adhering to public health standards that are prohibitive to normal campaigning strategies. Finding this balance will be important as the race intensifies.
- Previously in history, elections have been held during public health crises. In 1918, the United States held a successful election during the Spanish Flu outbreak.
