GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- Election Day is less than two months away, and candidates are holding as many events as possible ahead of the big day. However, some are still virtual.

Dr. Jill Biden held a back to school forum via Zoom that targeted people in Green Bay Tuesday afternoon. The question begs - how do voters feel about the virtual events?

"I think in some ways they are better," said Jim Jordan, a voter from the Green Bay area. "It is easier to tune into the candidate and see what their policies are."

Jordan has been voting in Brown County for over 20 years. He says this year is definitely different. He is sticking to learning as much about his desired candidate virtually - meaning he is attending Zoom events, watching clips on YouTube, and reading articles on social media.

"I find there is less distraction," Jordan says. "I can actually focus. In a crowd setting it is like a sporting event, sometimes I get distracted."

There is also the convenience factor.

"You can go one late in the afternoon, open up Zoom and see what they have to say at some virtual event," he said.

Jordan did mention he enjoys the in-person events because they bring more enthusiasm. However, he thinks this upcoming election is more about being informed before heading to the polls.

"I don't think the virtual events hurt any candidate," he said. "It is easy to be informed on what is going on."
