Close Up’s Premier Election Series not only gives students the chance to witness history as it unfolds, but also the opportunity to delve into the most important and poignant issues facing our nation. Like our Washington, DC Program, our Election Series brings students face-to-face with the people and institutions that impact policy decisions in and around Washington. They will also learn about our election process first-hand!
