When: Oct 25 2020 (All day) until Nov 7 2020 (All day)
Where: Virtual Seminar

The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election Reporting Seminar will begin with several foundational sessions intended to enhance participating journalists’ knowledge of the U.S. electoral college; federalism and the separation of powers; freedom of speech and the press; the history, demographics and policy platforms of the Republican and Democratic political parties; and campaign finance laws. Journalists will then explore specific election issues of interest to the 2020 cohort from the perspective of two swing states – Florida and Michigan. Journalists will also have multiple opportunities to virtually engage with American voters of varying demographics living in Florida and Michigan. The Center is also working to secure still photos and B-roll from local stringers that may be used copyright free. Following the election, journalists will meet virtually with DC-based government officials, analysts and other journalists to discuss the impact of the 2020 presidential election on security relations and international trade between the U.S. and those countries represented by participating journalists. The DC program will also analyze the long-term impact of the 2020 presidential election on the American political party and electoral system.
