CA Counts Town Hall: Our State’s Role in the 2016 Election
What will California’s role be in the primary and general elections for president? What are the issues and races that matter most to California voters? Why does the 2016 election matter to you? On Tuesday, May 17, Larry Mantle (host of KPCC’s “AirTalk”) and Scott Shafer (senior editor of KQED’s California Politics and Government Desk) will moderate a town hall featuring a panel of political analysts and insiders: University of California, Berkeley’s Lisa Garcia Bedolla, the Field Poll’s Mark DiCamillo, RNC National Committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon and Mindy Romero of the California Civic Engagement Project. We’ll ask our experts to analyze some of the major campaign storylines and issues before fielding questions from audience members. The event is part of California Counts, a collaboration among KPCC, KQED, KPBS and Capital Public Radio to report on the 2016 election season.
Stop by our mobile recording booth before or after the town hall to share your election-related thoughts. Contribute to the in-person conversation and on-air dialogue by letting us know why you’re voting and why you think others should, too.
