Be ready for this pre-election night! Once again, the battle to claim the most important job in the world, President of the United States, is even more exciting, more bizarre and much more fascinating than the last time round.

Since the presidential election is already interesting enough to discuss, we have invited a number of experts on the United States to shed light on this heavyweight fight:

– Michiel Vos will pay a special visit to the Netherlands to analyse the current state of affairs and to cast an eye on the expected final line-up.

– Victor Vlam is a US expert and will be using remarkable video clips from the Trump campaign in an attempt to explain the Donald Trump phenomenon.

– The Democratic party will be scrutinised by Tim Jelfs, Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of Groningen.

– And host of the evening is Americanist Jan Postma of BNR Newsradio. He is a reporter for the US elections.

Race to the White House – pre-election night – is an event leading up to Election Night USA on Tuesday 8 November in the Groninger Forum. The official language this evening is English.

Both programmes are being organised in collaboration with study associations SIB and CLIO.
