October 28, 2020

A panel of faculty from the NIU Department of Political Science and the NIU College of Law will hold a roundtable discussion, 7-8:30 p.m., Nov. 5, via Microsoft Teams, to field questions from the university  community regarding the outcomes of the Nov. 3 elections.

“This is an opportunity for members of the community to tap into some of the wonderful expertise we have on campus,” said Provost Beth Ingram who will moderate the panel.

Participating on the panel (and their area of expertise) will be:

  • April Clark, Department of Political Science (public opinion polling).
  • Marc Falkoff, College of Law (Constitutional law and the rule of law).
  • Robert Jones, College of Law (civil procedure, Constitutional law).

Attendees wishing to ask questions are asked to submit them in advance using an online form beginning at noon on Nov.2. Questions can be submitted until noon on Nov. 5. Only questions related to factual matters (voting procedures, legality of challenges, history of issues raised, candidate performance vs. polling performance, etc.) will be addressed.
