Given just how unusual this presidential campaign has been, political pundits have found it difficult to accurately predict what is going to happen next. 

Some experts believe the November election will come down to which party is most successful at turning out its base. Others say swing and new voters will decide the presidential race.

Joining us to discuss voting trends and how long-time and new voters are viewing this presidential election are Director of the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education in the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University, Nancy Thomas; Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Trey Grayson; and Professor of Communication Studies in the Northern Kentucky University College of Informatics, Dr. Steven Weiss.

The Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement at Northern Kentucky University will present the next Northern Kentucky Forum, Voting in America: A Report Card, on Monday, September 12 at 2 p.m. The Forum will be held in the University Center's Otto Budig Theater.
