UPUA Election: Youtube Debates

In case you haven’t heard, UPUA is holding its presidential elections this week. Debates were held last week between the two presidential candidates, Ragland and Adewumi, which UPUA taped and posted to YouTube. This is a change from last year, when the debates were streamed live. This change is actually quite beneficial, as now interested voters may watch the debates at their leisure to learn more about the candidates and their platforms.

According to Matthew Lachman (Head Elections Commissioner),  putting the debates on YouTube allows busy students to learn about the presidential tickets at their own leisure. He also said that the live streams garnered very few viewers, so it made sense to put them on YouTube. He feels that the increased accessibility of the debates will assist the students in making an informed decision, as the videos showcase the differences between the candidates.

So before the next and final debate, which will take place on March 29th at 7 PM, you now have the option to YouTube these debates.

Do you like the idea of having the debates posted on YouTube? Let us know in the comments!
