Rachael V. Cobb, Ph.D. examines how election policies have changed as a result of the pandemic. As policy-makers and administrators adapt to new rules and protocols of election management, including vote by mail, changes to in-person voting among other things, citizen faith in the act of voting and the process of counting is critical to the integrity of the election and the legitimacy of its outcome.

Cobb is Chair and Associate Professor of the Department of Government at Suffolk University. She specializes in U.S. elections, election administration, electoral politics, civic engagement, and political participation.
