Project Vote is proud to be a co-sponsor of “What We Know and What We Need to Know: Voter Registration and Turnout in the U.S.” On November 16, this one-day conference, hosted by the American University Washington College of Law, will bring together leading scholars of voter turnout, citizens, advocates, and policymakers to engage in a conversation about what we know about voter turnout and how to increase it.
Panel presentations will provide brief overviews of recent and innovative academic research on voter registration and turnout, with discussion focused on how scholarly research can inform citizen engagement and policy-making.
Topics will include: the effects of election laws; information and participation; social media and social context; and research challenges in studying voter registration and turnout. Brief panel presentations will be followed by audience Q&A.
