Bernie Sanders is hosting an election night rally this evening, May 17, in Carson, California. You can watch the southern California rally on livestream above. The event will double as a watch party for the results of the primaries in Kentucky and Oregon. The rally will be held at the Tennis Stadium at StubHub Center on the Cal-State Dominguez Hills campus. Doors to the rally will open at 5 p.m. local time, but livestreams typically don’t start at the same time that doors open. The livestream above should convert to a full replay of Sanders’ speech after the rally is over.
What time does the livestream begin? Although Sanders’ campaign hasn’t stated a specific time that he will start speaking, the rally livestreams typically begin two to three hours after the doors open. According to the countdown in the video above, the livestream will be starting around 8 p.m. Eastern. However, the livestream below puts the start time a couple hours later, at around 10:30 p.m. Eastern.
If the livestreams don’t work, you can also check Live Satellite News’ livestream videos at this link. They typically add a livestream for each of his rallies too, with a replay of the most recent rally running at the link until the new rally begins. They also have a great selection of full videos from his last week of rallies.
If you plan to attend in person, the event is free but you’re asked to RSVP online if possible. Limit what you carry to small, personal items and don’t bring bags due to security concerns. Also, security won’t allow in weapons, sharp objects, chairs, signs or banners. People will be allowed inside on a first-come, first-served basis, so get there early if you can. Some people even line up an hour or two before the doors open to get into Sanders’ rallies.
Parking is available on-site for a fee. Because of the crowds, Sanders’ website encourages carpooling if you can.
Sanders and his supporters are showing no signs of slowing down. Sanders held a rally in Sacramento, California and an estimated 21,000 people attended. You can see photos and read stories from people who attended in this article. His rallies in Montana were also attended by thousands.
Sanders still has a lot of rallies on his schedule. Tomorrow, he will host a rally in San Jose at 10 a.m. local time and a rally in Vallejo, California at 5 p.m. local time. The deadline to register to vote in California is May 23. This is also the deadline to register to vote in D.C. and South Dakota.
