This collection reflects coursework by students at the University of South Carolina Honors College exploring the 2020 election and civic engagement. Developed in 2019, before COVID-19 and before the presidential match-up was determined, the course emphasized exploration of all viewpoints and the many ways citizens can engage with their larger community around the political process.
