Marquette Law School to host discussion with election officials for virtual ‘On the Issues,’ Sept. 16

Sept. 15, 2020

Eckstein HallMILWAUKEE — Three local election officials will be featured guests in a virtual “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Sept. 16. The video will be available at 12:15 p.m. on the Marquette University Law School website.

Meagan Wolfe, Wisconsin Elections Commission administrator; Claire Woodall-Vogg, executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission; and Kelly Michaels, clerk for the City of Brookfield, will join Gousha to address the many questions surrounding the 2020 presidential election.

With less than two months until Election Day — Tuesday, Nov. 3 — the conversation will center on what is being done to prepare for an election unlike any other. The guests will discuss the impact the pandemic will have on this year’s vote and whether polling places will be adequately staffed. Other topics will include preparations for the expected surge in mail-in ballots, how long will it take to count the votes and whether there should be concerns about election fraud.

The virtual “On the Issues” is available to members of the general public.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars, conferences on significant issues of public importance and the work of its Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
