WUTP Podcast: Explaining mail-in voting
Happy Labor Day! There will be no regular newsletter today, but I’m here to tell you about the latest episode of the Wake Up To Politics Podcast.
In today’s episode, I’m joined by two ace elections reporters — Miles Parks of NPR and Grace Panetta of Business Insider — to break down what it will be like to vote in the 2020 election. Miles will offer some tips for making sure your mail-in ballot is counted, and Grace will answer questions many of you sent in about how to vote this fall.
Listen to the episode now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, or Stitcher. If you like what you hear, do me a favor: subscribe to the show and leave a rating.
