Beyond the Polls with The New London Day

May 29 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Day invites the public to have a say on the nation’s top 5 issues during our Election 2024 forums.

The intent of the meetings is to have residents weigh in on what local citizens identified in our first series of meetings as the Top 5 issues for our readers in this election cycle. The top issues were: protecting democracy, foreign policy, immigration and border policy, the environment and climate change, and the proliferation of misinformation and disinformation.

These free, open meetings will allow the time and space for people to give their points of view about any or all of these important issues that will help identify our next president, as well as informing upcoming elections for the U.S. House and U.S. Senate. You may also get a chance to hear viewpoints that are rarely expressed in public and challenge your own beliefs in interesting ways.

This will be a discussion, not a debate. Ground rules call for speakers, who may be videotaped at their discretion, to address the moderator, not each other, and that crowd reactions are kept to a minimum. Comments will be recorded for use in future articles, and names will be used with permission from participants.

In addition, we are asking readers unable to attend these meetings to email us their opinions on the Top 5 issues. Please respond to the following questions by emailing your thoughts on one or more to Election2024@theday.com. You can also send us a letter to: Lee Howard Election Series, c/o The Day, 47 Eugene O’Neill Drive, New London, CT 06320.
