Collaborative Election Series: Where Voters Are
Last week NPR launched a radio and digital network reporting project focused on 2020 voters called Where Voters Are, with the goal of meeting all kinds of voters where they are, geographically as well as philosophically. NPR hosts, along with reporters from NPR and local stations will focus on eight regions around the country, selected by the NPR Politics team to reflect the shifting electorate. The team will be looking for diverse voices and will explore the critical issues and themes of the election as we draw nearer and nearer to November.
