KUNM Call In Show 10/13 8a: The 2016 presidential election has been polarizing. Many of the biggest divides are over class, gender and race. We'll talk about how this election is highlighting voter attitudes on these important topics.

Are candidates addressing the impacts of racism? If you're a woman, what issues do you think are most important? Do you feel left behind in this economy and do you think any of the candidates will make a difference for you? We want to hear from you! Email or call 877-899-5866 during the show.
