Political science department hosting post-election 2020 Q&A event

Election 2020 Review Event on Nov 9

With the 2020 election less than two weeks away, the Department of Political Science and the Straayer Center for Public Service Leadership have been busy engaging with students and the public – answering questions about voting, elections, ballot initiatives, and the Supreme Court vacancy.

In September, the department held a virtual, non-partisan Q&A session on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy and the politics of filling a vacancy on the Supreme Court so close to a presidential election.

The Straayer Center, along with several other campus organizations, have been getting the word out about voting and hosted two of three voter engagement and county clerk forums with Larimer County Clerk and Recorder, Angela Myers. The third and final forum will be Wednesday, Oct. 28, 4 – 5 p.m. on Zoom.

Nov. 3 will come and go, but there will be plenty of questions about the election outcomes and what this means for our city, state, and country moving forward. Join the Department of Political Science and the Straayer Center for Public Service Leadership for “Election 2020 in Review.”

Dr. Robert Duffy, Dr. Courtenay Daum, and Dr. Kyle Saunders study American Politics and will debrief the election from their different lenses: Federal Elections, State Legislature, and Ballot Initiatives.

“At this important moment in American politics, we hope to be able to put the results of this important election in context,” said Duffy.

The second half of the panel will be a Q&A with questions submitted by attendees through the registration link and through the chat function during the panel.
