Zoom: https://stmarys-ca.zoom.us/j/91869532532 (meeting ID 918 6953 2532)

Many questions are on voters’ minds as we approach this November’s election. Changes in how we vote, questions about how our votes will be counted, and concerns about disinformation and even foreign interference make this one of the most challenging elections in recent history. In this talk, we’ll examine the key components of elections in America and how mathematicians are helping to ensure the integrity of our democratic process.
