Community connection has never been more important than right now, as we are in one of the most important times that we all come together in this great American democracy: Election Day. But in this 2020 election, as for so many things in 2020, we have anxiety. You may well have just this morning turned on your NPR to hear discussion about concerns about violence in November. Or you’ve thought that we have to take a moment to breathe and sort out what this means for our community. How are you feeling about voting this momentous election? Today we’ll talk about all things voting, and we’ll take some time to sort out the questions, and to remember that there is still much in this democracy that we agree on. We just have to find it.
Our guests: Mary Stegmaier, MU political science professor and expert on elections and voting
Sheryl Oring and Lisa Bielawa, creators of “Voters’ Broadcast,” a musical work that seeks to raise the voices of voters in our democracy
