Election 2018: Recommended reading

November 6, 2018

Today we’re seeing a blizzard of news analysis pieces, essays, op-eds, and a million other election-related items.

Here are five pieces that I’d recommend. I may offer recommendations later in the evening. Please add your own recommendations in the comments.

1. 12 Young People on Why They Probably Won’t Vote
By Rachel Bashein, Zak Cheney-Rice, Amelia Schonbek, and Emma Whitford | New York Magazine | November 2018
“More than half of American adults plan to cast ballots in November, but only a third of people ages 18 to 29 say they will. Here, 12 young adults on why they probably won’t vote.”

2. 7 things to watch on Election Day
By Lisa Hagan and Max Greenwood | The Hill | November 2018
“How big will turnout be? Democrats will pick up House seats but how just how many? It’s not the economy, stupid.”

3. What’s at stake for women in this year’s midterms
By Emily Sugerman | The Daily Beast | November 2018
“Female candidates and abortion rights are on the ballot, while the #MeToo movement is one everyone’s mind.”

4. Voters Head to the Polls, and America Waits for Answers
The New York Times | November 2018
“Will Republicans hold onto their majorities in the House and Senate? Will President Trump’s supporters come out in force at the polls once again? Will a “blue wave” happen?”

5. Spotify Made a Texas Voting Playlist
By Dan Solomon | Texas Monthly | November 2018
“The Sweden-based music streaming service wants to rev up Texans to do their civic duty with songs popular in the state.”
