Panel discussion: Election 2020: Challenges and Predictions

Many important questions remain about the 2020 election. During an upcoming panel discussion, four Boise State political scientists will examine the issues and offer their predictions for the race, including voting rights and processes, polling, electoral context, women voters, and race.

The discussion will take place via Zoom on from 7-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29.

Panelists include: Jaci Kettler, who will address voting rights and women voters in the 2020 election; Steve Utych, who will address race in politics and a time of partisanship and polarization; Jeff Lyons, who will address polls (and can we trust them), the urban/rural divide, and the possibility of the suburbs trending democratic; Charlie Hunt, who will address the election prognosis for Congress – and specific Senate races that are a must-watch – and the party splits formed on issues such as COVID and mail in voting.

Attendees are encouraged to bring questions.

The event is free, but registration is required.
