Amel Ahmed Quoted In The Boston Globe About The 2020 Election

Associate Professor of Political Science Amel Ahmed comments about an increase in requests made to local elections officials for documents related to the 2020 presidential election.  The Massachusetts secretary of state says those making requests are, “ self-appointed vigilantes who think they are going to go out and protect America.” Ahmed says the requests create “a nebulous aura of doubt” and sow seeds in people’s minds that elections are not secure.
