Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo breaks down what to anticipate on election day

Four years ago, a lot of Americans went to bed believing they were prepared to see Hillary Clinton become the first woman to win the White House, and Donald Trump changed that narrative. On Tuesday, November 3, voters decided if President Trump deserved another four years in office. Given the historical number of ballots, the question many political experts were asking is what type of turnout did President Trump need to stay in office?

Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, weighed in on what to expect on election day on FOX 32 Chicago.

“We know from states that require voters to register as a party when they register to vote that more democrats asked for mail-in ballots and cast them then republicans,” said Caliendo. “If that is the case, President Trump needs a good turnout in person today [election day].”
