HuffPost Offers Free 2024 Election Coverage, Seeks Reader Support

As the2024 presidential electionapproaches, HuffPost is committed to providing free and accessible journalism to keep voters well-informed. With President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump as the main contenders, the election will be pivotal in shaping the nation's future.

Why this matters: The outcome of the presidential election will have far-reaching consequences for the country's future, influencing policy decisions on critical issues like women's rights, healthcare, and democracy. Ensuring access to reliable and unbiased information is crucial for an informed electorate, which is essential for the health of democracy.

To maintain its free election coverage, HuffPost is seeking reader support through contributions as low as $2. The outlet emphasizes the importance of a free press and reader funding to ensure that high-quality news coverage remains accessible to all during this critical period.

The 81-year-old incumbent, Joe Biden, has a reputation as a centrist Democrat but has pushed to expand the state and lobbied for unions during his presidency. He has also led an international coalition supporting Ukraine against Russia's invasion. If re-elected, Biden would be the oldest ever major-party presidential candidate.

Donald Trump, the 77-year-old former president, is running on a platform that includes familiar culture-war issues, such as building a border wall, and fresh grievances against the lawyers prosecuting his cases and the judges overseeing them. Trump currently faces 91 felony charges across four criminal indictments, including two in federal court and two in Georgia state court, but denies all wrongdoing.

Key issues at stake in the election include women's rights, healthcare, and democracy. Abortion rights, in particular, are a pivotal issue, with voters in about a dozen states set to decide on constitutional amendments that could impact access to abortion. Biden supports legal access to abortion and has encouraged Congress to pass a law codifying abortion rights nationwide, while Trump has stated that the issue should be left to states.

Thecalendar spans from January to June, with voters in all states and U.S. territories picking their party's nominee for president ahead of the summer conventions where the nominees will be officially announced. While the election is still months away, the campaign is expected to begin in earnest now that the two main candidates are essentially decided.

By supporting HuffPost's free journalism initiative, readers can help ensure they continue to have access to reliable and unbiased information throughout the 2024 election cycle. With the stakes higher than ever, HuffPost's commitment to accessible journalism is more critical than ever in keeping the electorate informed and engaged.
