University of Arizona Debate Series to focus on fraud, voter suppression

  • Updated

The University of Arizona 

Tired of people on social media shouting at you in all caps about election fraud and voter suppression?

The University of Arizona will host a more civilized discussion of the topic on Thursday, Oct. 22 as part of its debate series.

Four undergraduate students will pair up and square off on opposite sides of one central resolution: “Our Election System is Fair, Not Rigged.”

The forum will cover such topics as voter suppression, fraud and gerrymandering, said UA debate coach and debate series executive director Ted McLoof .

“We always try to sync up with something that’s going on at the moment,” he said.

The hour-long event begins at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast live on the UA Debate Series Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Those who tune in will be asked to vote on the resolution before and after the debate, with the winner to be determined by the number of viewers whose minds are changed.

With an ongoing pandemic and talk of mail-in fraud, we’ve got the answers to your election questions.
