WHO ARE WE?
The Elections Research Center fosters cutting-edge academic analysis of national and state elections to further the scholarly understanding of factors that influence voter decision-making and election outcomes. It continues a long tradition of excellence in elections-related study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Center supports a variety of activities including graduate student summer research, faculty travel, media analysis, teaching materials, and a biennial symposium to showcase new research following each federal election.
The Elections Research Center is supported in part by the Lyons Family Chair in Electoral Politics.
