Tap the Vote: What did the election tell us and how was it covered?

    Now that perhaps the most contentious presidential election in recent memory is over, join PRSA members, the media and the public next Tuesday evening, November 15, from 6:30-7:30, for a lively panel discussion about the 2016 election and its coverage. How did the local and national media do informing voters? How did candidates and issue campaigns do communicating to Coloradans? Was the communication factual, transparent, ethical? What did you learn and what questions do you still have?

    Jason Salzman of and Laura Carno of I am Created Equal will moderate a panel that will include representatives from the Denver Post, Denver 7 and DU’s Roosevelt Institute. Lisa Cutter, president of Cutter Communications and former chapter president will represent PRSA.

    Moderators will field questions sent from you (and the public) on PRSA’s TaptheVote Facebook event page and #tapthevote on Twitter, as well as from attendees and the streaming video audience.

    To register for the free event, which will take place at the Denver Post Auditorium (101 W. Colfax Ave.), visit Parking is available onsite at the Denver Post Garage for $5. After the event, you’re invited to keep the conversation going at nearby Denver Press Club where cocktails will be available for purchase and snacks will be provided by CU’s School of Public Affairs.
