Announcing: Election Night Policy and a Pint

Election Night Policy and a Pint

Presented by MPR News, The Current and the Citizens League

Hosted by Steve Seel and Tom Crann

Live audio and video broadcast on the web and on 89.3 The Current

Tuesday, November 7

7:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.

The UBS Forum at Minnesota Public Radio

Tickets to this event are free, but registration is required. To reserve tickets to this event click here.

Minnesota Public Radio will host an "alternative" election night event in The UBS Forum modeled after The Current's successful Policy and a Pint series. This event will bring together 80+ bloggers, news junkies, and interested citizens to talk about politics and election results in a informal and non-partisan atmosphere co-hosted by the Citizens League.

Steve Seel and Tom Crann will anchor a four-hour live webstream from the forum as well as cutting into The Current to provide election updates. The forum will host high-profile political bloggers from the region who will update their blogs and and participate in the hosted discussion. Steve and Tom will talk politics with local political analysts and commentators and, where possible, connect with the candidates themselves. Monitors throughout the forum will broadcast the latest results from MPR and other sources while a DJ provides entertainment during breaks in the action.

Politically-themed snacks and various refreshments (a limited amount of beer and wine) will be served.

This is a non-partisan election activity. No campaign or issue-related signs or banners may be displayed inside the Minnesota Public Radio headquarters building. No campaigning is allowed in the building including the distribution of campaign materials. MPR encourages respectful debate during all election programming.
