Celebrate your right to vote at Election Central, University of Delaware's nonpartisan, election-night tradition since 2008.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Election Central 2020 will be a live virtual Zoom event on November 3, 6 to 8 p.m. Journalists from UD’s Student Television Network (STN), The Review, and Delaware Public Media will discuss voter turnout, talk with first-time voters, share political humor, and hear what members of Gen Z think about the future.
Panels of faculty experts and students will discuss polling, how to manage stress, female voters, and what to expect after November 3:
