America Votes 2016 is a multimedia project to document election day in parts of St. Lawrence County, in upstate New York.

The journalists are all students in a reporting skills class in their first year of the Master of Journalism program at Carleton University, in Ottawa.

This group of 19 young journalists is fanning out across the county to capture and share some of the events – at the local level – in this historic election. You can follow their reporting here on Nov. 8.
