This year OISS has partnered with the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement to offer a series of workshops for International Students & Scholars on issues related to the 2020 U.S. Elections. You can keep an eye on our Eventbrite page for future workshops, and if you’ve missed our previous sessions you can check them out below:
U.S. Elections 101 (Oct 15, 2020)
This workshop covered U.S. election basics, including the different levels and branches of the U.S. government, the Electoral College and its significance for campaign strategies, and voter eligibility. We also went over some of the people and issues that were on the Missouri ballot this election year.
U.S. Election 2020: What Comes Next? (Nov 12, 2020)
A week and a half after the election, there is still a lot that is unknown. OISS and Gephardt discussed what we know about the outcome of the 2020 US Election so far, and what comes next procedurally for the Presidential Administration and the outstanding senate and house races.
