The 2020 elections have the potential for a major impact on policy. The national elections feature an election for president, along with elections for all seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 seats in the U.S. Senate. At the state level, 13 states and territories will have elections for governor and 44 states will have elections for one or both chambers of the state legislature. During this session, a panel of experts provided a preview of the 2020 elections at both the national and state level and discussed how the results of the elections will impact policy overall, and specifically the Career Technical Education system. Panelists also discussed what state CTE leaders can do now to prepare for the elections in November.
