On the eve of the 2012 US Presidential Election, 80 UBC Alumni and friends joined 3 passionate Canadians to discuss the election and its potential implications for Canada. The discussion focused on how America elects its government; the role of voter ID and early voting; the Senate races; the impending debt deal and of course, predictions about the outcome.
The panellists were:
