    Got a burning politics question, or just something you’re curious about? Each week, starting Thursday at noon, The Fix team chats with readers about the big stories in politics.

    This week, the team is joined by Amy Gardner and Michelle Lee, two Post reporters covering voting, ballots, and officials overseeing this election. They have covered the ins and out of the process, whether it be in-person or through the mail, the politics of voting in this pandemic and what we know so far about early voting.

    Earlier this week, Amy had a story on Black Americans who say this presidential election is the most important of their lifetime. Two weeks before Election Day, we’re seeing historic levels of early voting among Black Americans. And she’s one of the reporters who broke the story this summer about allegations that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, when he was a businessman, reimbursed employees for political contributions.

    Michelle recently reported on Pennsylvania where first-time and absentee voters are complaining about difficulty registering to vote or request a mail ballot. Michelle also reports on campaign finance.

    What are your questions about voting and the politics of it?
