PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE | NOVEMBER 2, 2020

ACM ELECTION COVERAGE

I want to thank all our members for their local election coverage this election season.  From voter guides and candidate forums, to public service announcements on registration and voter safety, ACM members have been doing essential work for local democracy this year.  

Many folks will be culminating election coverage with Election night specials and analysis programs in the coming week.  Thank you for helping democracy thrive in your communities!
