Hello, my partner wants me to take the elections disadvantage in the 1NR at our first league tournament this weekend. This is my first real tournament in varsity (even though that doesn't mean much in our league). I know what the elections disadvantage is, but how would I structure my 1NR? Thank you.

Start with impact calculus. Make some subpointed arguments about why your impact is bigger, faster, more likely, and triggers every single impact the Aff has. Then extend your 1NC uniqueness evidence, answer their arguments about who will win now with lots of cards and why their wvidence is bad. Then extend your 1NC link evidence. Answer their link arguments the same way. Do the same with your internal link - extending, answering, and comparing. Then extend your 1NC impact and answer any arguments not covered at the beginning of your speech.

i mean, you should always do line by line after the impact overview -- not sure what the judges in your circuit like, but most judges (in my experience) don't like it when the neg is like "now the uniqueness debate", "now the link debate", etc. if the 2ac is not in that order (i.e. the 2ac is like 1. no impact 2. uniqueness overwhelms 3. clinton already distancing from obama 5. obama approval inev, etc. etc. etc.)

You are using the elections Da wrong, you run it with 5 other Da's in the 1NC, but what you do it you kick out of it in the block with the other da's, and read 13 mins of your K in the block

This works too but you gotta extend 1NC ev at some point.
