Nine outlines coverage of the American Election 2020

Next week America goes to the polls to determine the leader of the free world for the next four years – and Nine will be there to bring you all the unfolding drama, live and free.

In what is arguably the most important election of a generation, voters will choose between four more years of Donald Trump or put Joe Biden in the White House, making him the oldest President in history.
Our coverage begins at 5.00am on Wednesday, November 4, with 9News Early Edition, followed by Today, which will run a special extended show until 11.00am.
The US election coverage starts at 11.00am and will be hosted by Peter Overton and Nine’s political expert and former US correspondent, Charles Croucher.
We will also cross regularly to Nine’s Political Editor Chris Uhlmann in Canberra and the network’s former long-time US correspondent, Robert Penfold, in Los Angeles.
Our three current US correspondents will be reporting live from the heart of the action.
Amelia Adams will be with the Trump camp at the Trump Hotel in Washington, DC.
Alexis Daish will be with the Biden camp at the Chase Centre in Wilmington, Delaware (the same location at which he accepted the Democrat nomination).
And Tim Arvier will be at a Republican beach party in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Using the vast resources of our broadcast partner, CNN, Nine will also feature analysis and breaking news from their election experts.
Comprehensive reporting and a wrap of the day’s events will also be featured in 9News at 6.00pm, as well as 9News: Late Edition after the first NRL State of Origin match.
