April 15 – Presidential Election Preview.   Presidential campaigns may be overly long and too expensive, but they might be the best test of a candidate’s ability to handle the job.  Three billion dollars might be spent on the 2016 race. What should voters look for? How should they interpret poll results, the math of the Electoral College and the ways candidates seek to construct political narratives to influence your vote? Scott LaDeur, Ph.D., political science instructor at North Central Michigan College, will explain how voters can prepare themselves for the long campaign ahead.

All Luncheon Lecture programs are held on Fridays in the Library conference room. Reservations are required. Call 231-348-6600 or email [email protected]edu to reserve your place at the table. Cost is $10. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. The program begins at noon.
