Re: Franita Tolson

Franita Tolson was quoted in the New Yorker about the legal challenges likely to follow the 2020 presidential election. “You will still see many claims that absentee ballots have been wrongly rejected, and those will lead to court cases," Tolson said. "The fact that we are generating lots of voting by mail will generate a lot of litigation.”
