Davis Media Access will present live, election-night coverage from 8-11 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 2. Hosts for the evening are community organizers Lea Rosenberg and Andrea Jones.

"As it has done for more than 22 years, DMA highlights the local races and issues that are ignored by commercial broadcast media," said Jones, who also serves as president of DMA's board of directors. "We view this coverage as core to our mission of creating community through local media." Invited guests include those from the races for local school board and Assembly District 8, as well as seated members of the DJUSD Board of Trustees. A schedule of invited guests is below.
Building off the continuing 90th anniversary celebration of the 19th Amendment, the show will also feature notable female elected officials.
