Throughout the fall semester, many student groups have been actively engaged in the political process, holding voter registration and absentee ballot drives, organizing debate watching parties, and keeping up to date with political news. With just days until the election, they are busy planning additional events to keep the study body engaged, informed and excited to cast their first ballot in this year’s critically important and closely-contested presidential race.
Here’s what’s coming up:

Post-Election Analysis Panel: Reflections on the 2012 Elections
4 – 5 p.m.
A tradition among American government faculty at Holy Cross, the political science department holds a post-election analysis panel every two years after major elections. This year’s panel will feature Donald Brand, professor and chair; Daniel Klinghard, associate professor; B. Jeffrey Reno, associate professor; Alison Mangiero, instructor; and Erik Filipiak, visiting assistant professor.
Faculty will offer insight into the demographic breakdown of the vote, looking particularly at women voters since they have been a major focus of the campaign; as well as the likely consequences of the election, especially implications for replacing Supreme Court nominations.
In addition to engaging in the political process through events on campus, faculty and students from a variety of disciplines have offered their commentary to local and national media outlets. Here’s some of what they said:
