Only 11% of European adults expect the upcoming United States presidential election to be “completely free and fair.” Notably, citizens of Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Sweden are more inclined to question the accuracy in this election, according to a recent survey by YouGov. The survey polled over 9,000 adults from various western European nations between September and October.
The U.S. election has already implemented alternatives to in-person voting in the hopes of preventing the spread of COVID-19, such as voting by mail and early voting. Yet many Americans are uncertain about how this could affect the accuracy of election results. About one-in-four Americans are concerned about voter fraud when voting by mail, according to a survey by Pew Research Center.
