Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appeared on singer Miley Cyrus’ Instagram live show “Bright Minded” to share her thoughts on voting in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.
Warren explained the best way to tackle the coronavirus is through leadership.
“Everything we want to do in part depends on our leadership,” Warren said. “So, critically important that we protect our right to vote.”
Warren said she is pushing for every registered voter in the U.S. to receive a mail-in ballot. She pointed to online registration and expanded registration periods as ways to mitigate the effects the coronavirus is having on the election.

The former presidential hopeful reiterated the importance of voting in the election despite facing a health crisis.
“If we have another wave of this pandemic, we do not want to make it so that people are having to make the choice between their health and voting,” Warren said.
She noted former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is “strong on protecting voting.”
“One way to make sure we’re strengthening our Democracy is go to JoeBiden.com, pitch in five bucks, volunteer to do a little texting or a little phone banking,” Warren said.
She closed the exchange reiterating the significance of Democracy and leadership.
Biden continues to gain momentum as he adds to his list of endorsements.
