Voters’ motivation: what are the main concerns?

Concept and Moderation

Mirjana Tomic, fjum


BuzzFeed national politics reporters Henry Gomez and Ruby Cramer cover the elections from different locations: Ohio and New York. Local political issues do not coincide. Henry Gomez focuses the Midwest political scene. Ruby Cramer underlines the diversity of the US voters.  What do voters talk about? Do their concerns coincide with the headline of the major national media? How does one cover the elections with reduced mobility due to Covid 19? Is the access to sources limited? Are the 2020 elections unique? Can they be compared to 2016? Two experienced US journalists speak about the situation on the ground.

This event is conceived as an interactive exchange among colleagues.


Short presentations followed by a live conversation.

Target Groups

Journalists from the Austrian and international media.

Number of participants: Maximum 50
