In terms of community involvement, the conduct of regional head elections embodies the representational function inherent in popular sovereignty. The role of representation is one of the government's functions. As a result, the selection represents the aim of Government Science. The purpose of this research is to assess "Community Participation in the Conduct of Simultaneous Regional Head Elections during the Covid-19 Pandemic Period" in Banten Province (Case Study: Serang Regency, Pandeglang Regency, Cilegon City, and Tangerang City) in 2020.
