With presumptive democratic nominee Joe Biden announcing Kamala Harris as his running mate last week, this year’s presidential race is heating up – and just in time for the Democratic National Convention.
The convention will take place virtually this year rather than in its originally planned location of Milwaukee, Wis., and will feature a slew of speeches delivered from different sites across the country from Aug. 17-20.
Speakers include Biden and Harris, who are set to accept the party’s nomination; former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; former democratic candidates and senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar; Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who will deliver a speech encouraging his fellow Republicans to vote for Biden and Harris.
From 9 to 11 p.m. ET each night, the convention will be televised on all major networks and broadcast on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Twitch. Viewers can also watch on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV by downloading the free app Endavo onto their devices. In addition, the event will be livestreamed directly from the DNC’s website.
Speeches will correlate with each day’s theme, with Monday’s being “We the People;” Tuesday is “Leadership Matters,;” Wednesday is “A More Perfect Union” and Thursday is “America’s Promise.”
