Democracy Forum. Election Reflections: What Just Happened Here?

WERU 89.9 FM
Friday, November 18, 2022
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

This month, as we do each election year in November, we'll have a conversation about the election. This year, it will be less about how the parties and the candidates performed; more about how democracy performed. How did the election machinery hold up? How have our citizens embraced or rejected the legitimacy of the outcomes? Did women voters play a pivotal role in Maine or in other states? What about young voters? What does it all mean in the context of a bigger conversation about the future of western democracy?

Special Guests:

  • Maya EichornMaine Students Vote Fellow, Liberal Studies Student York County Community College
  • Elaine Kamarck, Founding Director at the Center for Effective Public Management and Senior Fellow in Governance Studies at Brookings.
  • Steve Mistler, Chief Political Correspondent and State House Bureau Chief, Maine Public
