Local reporters: If you want to make a difference in the 2020 election, this thread is for you. #votebeat
Hard truth: We are awash in presidential election news, but still lack enough local reporting on how America will successfully vote in a pandemic. With 10K+ election boards in the U.S., we run the risk of each county finding its own unique way to botch an unprecedented election.

We emailed the White House for comment but never heard back, so we turned to the data. Trump’s claim didn’t stand up to scrutiny.
