Donald Trump is already priming his most ardent supporters to revolt should he lose the election in November. By questioning the reliability of postal votes, he is pre-emptively labelling it ‘the most rigged election in history’. Pro-Trump armed militia have occupied state capitols in the culture war over masks during the Covid-19 pandemic. If he loses on November 3rd, how could the result be resisted, and by whom? Whatever the outcome for the President, join us to explore what kind of U.S democracy American citizens, and the world, will wake up to on November 4th.

Chair: Dave Taylor, Editor and Partner, Tortoise

How does a digital ThinkIn work?

A digital ThinkIn is like a video conference, hosted by a Tortoise editor, that takes place at the advertised time of the event. Digital ThinkIns are new to Tortoise. Now that our newsroom has closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, we feel it’s more important than ever that we ‘get together’ to talk about the world and what’s going on.

The link to join the conversation will be emailed to you after you have registered for your ticket to attend. When you click the link, you enter the digital ThinkIn and can join a live conversation from wherever you are in the world.

Doors open at 6:20pm for a welcome and briefing. Come early to get settled, meet the team and chat to other members. ThinkIn starts at 6:30pm.

Members can enter their unique members’ access code to book tickets. Find yours in My Tortoise > My Membership in the Tortoise app.

If you have any questions or get stuck, please read our FAQs, or get in touch with us at memberhelp@tortoisemedia.com

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. It is a place where everyone has a seat at the (virtual) table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
