The security of the U.S. election system is on the minds of many Americans, with early voting beginning and mail-in ballots arriving in mailboxes in many states across the country. Just how secure is this election, and what is being done to protect against foreign interference, hacking and cyber attacks? What challenges to election officials face due to the current pandemic, and how can the American public be assured that the election will be secure and fair?

Virtual Call to Conversation
This online version of a Call to Conversation facilitates “virtual” face-to-face engagement through remote video conferencing. Developed in response to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, a Virtual C2C employs free, user-friendly Zoom technology to bring Wake Foresters together from their computers or mobile devices anywhere in the world. A Wake Forester volunteers to serve as Conversation Leader, and the C2C team manages the guest list and registration. Digital resources are available for the Virtual C2C Conversation Leader as well as participants.
