As part of the International Foundation for Electoral Systems’ (IFES) ongoing commitment to adaptation, innovation and resilience in the wake of COVID-19, the 2020 U.S. Election Program (USEP) was virtual!

While the IFES USEP traditionally gathers hundreds of elections experts from dozens of countries to witness the elections in person in the U.S., during the pandemic we prioritized the health and well-being of everyone involved. So, this year, IFES brought together more partners than ever before for a front-row seat to the 2020 U.S. elections – online.

IFES’ reimagined USEP offered participants from around the world a unique window into the election with live online events, on-demand videos and social media featuring fascinating interviews, dynamic debates, critical analysis, shared learning and networking opportunities.

This multimedia experience took place October to November 2020.
