Democratic National Convention 2020 night 2: How to watch Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, AOC – CNET

Published

on

This story is part of Elections 2020, CNET’s coverage of the run-up to voting in November.

The second session of the Democratic National Convention kicks off in just 4 hours. Last night, the Democratic Party nominated former Vice President Joe Biden as their presidential candidate. Biden, who chose Sen. Kamala Harris to join him on the ticket as the vice presidential candidate, will accept the nomination from his home in Delaware on Thursday. The DNC, originally planned for Milwaukee, is noticeably different this year with most events taking place virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tonight, we’ll hear from speakers like former President Jimmy Carter, former President Bill Clinton, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Party luminaries, including former President Barack Obama, are expected to speak throughout the week (see the full speaker schedule below).

Biden, who served eight years as Obama’s vice president, is running against President Donald Trump. More Americans than usual are expected to use mail-in and absentee voting during the election season because of the pandemic. Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Delayed by about a month, the DNC began Monday, Aug. 17, and runs through Aug. 20. Speeches will be streamed from 9 to 11 p.m. ET (6 to 8 p.m. PT) each night. Here’s how you can watch, including free online options.
