Description: It
will be held in the Lair at the DeRosa Center and is open to the

the Campaigns and Elections class) on the state of the election; i.e.,
what states and contests to watch and why. The TVs will be tuned to
different stations to watch the returns, and a computer will be hooked
up to a projector to watch the California returns. There will be
contests for the students (Predict the Electoral Vote!, Who Will
Control Congress by How Much?), and food will be provided. After we
have a good idea of the outcome, we’ll have some post-election
