YouTube launched the official YouTube Election Hub on Wednesday, calling it a “one-stop channel for key political moments from now through the upcoming U.S. election day on November 6.” This marks the first time YouTube will be offering live streams of campaign coverage, including speeches and debates.

It’s all there for us as citizens to peruse through and digest, and it really does push democracy.” To read the whole article, click the photo above or click here.
