NAACP Election 2020 Special Coverage

The 2020 election will be the most consequential in recent years. From the presidential contest to congressional races and local elections, the confluence of the anemic federal response to the global coronavirus pandemic, social justice uprisings and national reckoning on systemic racism, and the suffering economy has highlighted, for many, the importance of change. Adding a particular challenge this year, even as the US Postal Service has decided to cut back on some services, social distancing has necessitated conversations around in-person voting and mail-in ballots.

The NAACP will present a special election day coverage event on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, 7 – 10 pm ET to bring forward timely, relevant, and authentic stories of the Black experience in key cities and swing states from around the country. The NAACP will also host a Virtual National Town Hall on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 8 – 9 pm ET to review the outcome and impact of this pivotal election.

Over two days, political analysts, pollsters, regional correspondents, concerned citizens, elected officials and celebrity guests will join Award-winning journalist, Ed Gordon, journalist, with insights. The event will engage Black Americans and be live-streamed on NAACP, Ed Gordon Media platforms, and several streaming platforms.

In one of the most critical election years, the NAACP is taking the lead to ensure our narratives, perspectives, and votes are documented and counted. Voter suppression and intimidation are rampant and pose a significant threat to our civic participation.

We need a space that speaks directly to our concerns, a space that is a bit more authentic than what we see on cable and broadcast. We will provide that with this special coverage.
