A team of experts from the UW-Madison Elections Research Center has made themselves available to provide information on national and state races happening for the Nov. 6 election.
The group is comprised of political science and journalism professors. They will be able to give pre- and post-midterm analysis and commentary on the upcoming election.
The center does this analysis to create a greater understanding of factors that influence voter decision-making and election results, according to the Elections Research Center website.
The team was created to make the center’s research more available to UW-Madison students and community members. There is also an on-campus studio available in Grainger Hall where people can conduct and tape live shoots with the experts.
Members of the team will speak at the center’s 2018 Election Symposium on Dec. 7, which will highlight results of the midterm elections and topics such as social media, the rise of women candidates and the influence of misinformation and social media.Subscribe to The Daily Cardinal Newsletter
