The ending of this week leaves us with 17 days before election day. While 2020 voting has started earlier and with record-breaking turnout, November 3rd still marks the height of the most frenetic election season most of us have ever witnessed. There is a wide variety of news to update this week– from the most recent unemployment numbers and the continued roller coaster of stimulus talks, to gender equality, growing law-firm layoffs, ballot harvesting, re-surging coronavirus infections and highlights from the Supreme Court confirmation hearings on Amy Coney Barrett.
