This week, the editors and student journalists of LakeVoice News have produced more than 30 stories looking at next week’s election. This work includes news articles, interactive maps, videos, audio podcasts and interactive timelines.
You can read these stories by going to the Election 2012 category on the Lakevoicenews.org website.
The articles focus on the issues that are relevant and important to everyone but specifically to voters age 18 to 30.
Included are exclusive interviews with Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, congressional candidate Rick Nolan, and many of the key supporters and opponents of the two amendments on the ballot. The journalists have worked hard to present the perspectives of all sides on the key issues in the race.
More stories will be added within the next 24 hours.
LakeVoice News is a bridge between the Twin Ports community and the University of Minnesota Duluth campus. Our newsroom is run by students and the majority of our content is written by students, but the news is about the community. It is in our best interest to cover all areas of Duluth as we learn more about the city and become a greater community. We are young writers who bring a fresh perspective to issues that affect the city as a whole.
We welcome community contributions of various forms (photographs, video, story ideas, events, etc.) via our email address or simply posted in a comment box.
The views expressed on LakeVoice News are that of the individual(s) behind each story and should in no way be construed as reflecting those of the University of Minnesota Duluth or its affiliates.
