Crossley Center Adds New Fall Election Programs

In a political year with multiple surprises, the Crossley Center is adding new programs. We’ve included a panel on political forecasting, especially the presidential and senate races, to be led by a national expert. Also, with the voting process in question, a panel on the counting and reporting of election night results with Colorado media and election experts has been scheduled. The implications of the election for foreign policy will be reviewed a week after the election with top experts in international affairs. To stay current on this tumultuous election, join our Zoom programs in the Crossley Center Election Central.
