More citizens voted in 2020 than ever in history. Former Vice President Joe Biden is on track to be inaugurated Jan. 20, 2021. But many questions remain – from control of the Senate, to the impact of local elections, to the future of the country’s noble experiment in democracy.
A distinguished panel assembled by the League of Women Voters of Buffalo/Niagara will consider some of these topics during a free virtual program at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19.
Panelists include Lee Coppola, dean (retired), St. Bonaventure University School of Journalism; Peter Yacobucci, Ph.D., associate professor of political science, SUNY Buffalo State; and Robert J. McCarthy, political reporter, The Buffalo News.
Persons wishing to attend the program must register by Monday, Nov. 16, via email to [email protected]. The program is free, but an email address must be provided in order to receive Zoom participation instructions.
