Your Voice Ohio dialogues
After participants in the Your Voice Ohio dialogues expressed concern about the country’s ability to hold an election during a pandemic in the midst of distrust and challenges facing the news media, the following question was sent to the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
To the campaign:
The media collaborative Your Voice Ohio, the nation’s largest statewide media collaborative with 50 participating news outlets, recently completed a round of online dialogues with voters across the state.
They expressed three concerns regarding their voting in the 2020 General Election:
Efficacy of the process, including the implications of a pandemic.
Knowing who or what to trust.
The lack of resources available to local news media to fully explain issues and candidates’ positions.
On hearing this, what would Mr. Trump/Mr. Biden say to Ohioans that shows how you will help address their concerns about being informed, confident voters in the 2020 election and in the future?
Neither campaign responded.
