'A Fire That Has Spread Across the Country': Jelani Cobb on Voter Suppression in the 2020 Election

2020-10-20T11:31:26-07:00

As tens of millions of people across the U.S. cast their ballots in early voting ahead of the November 3 election, "Democracy Now!" looks at voter suppression efforts with journalist and academic Jelani Cobb. His new "Frontline" documentary "Whose Vote Counts" examines the long lines, record number of mail-in ballots and the legal fights that have marked voting during the pandemic, with a focus on Wisconsin. "This is a state where the presidency was essentially decided in the last election," says Cobb, a professor of journalism at Columbia University and a contributor to The New Yorker. He describes voter suppression as "a fire that has spread across the country."
