The purpose of the roundtable is to host a discussion that will ultimately contribute to the public having credible, reliable and timely social media sources about elections. We will discuss the basic premise of social media outlets that will include an overview about demographics, trends and the overall culture. Journalists will offer their perspective about how they use social media as a reporting tool, and election officials will discuss their experiences.
