Upcoming Series:


The 2020 election season will be like no other in U.S. history. An unconventional incumbent president, an international pandemic, and social and economic unrest will be on voters’ minds this fall. How will these people and events shape campaign messages? What can we learn from past elections in trying times? What will the results mean for 2021 and beyond? Join us this fall as we take a deep dive into Election 2020.
