California has put in place a set of reforms aimed at expanding voter turnout and reducing the “participation gaps” along racial, ethnic, and age lines that have long created a divide between our population and our electorate. Have these changes – including the Voter’s Choice Act, changes in the timing of local elections, and programs such as Track My Ballot – resulted in measurable impacts on participation? The UC’s multicampus New Electorate Project has conducted a series of surveys, randomized field experiments, and studies of the phased implementation of reforms to provide rigorous evidence assessing these impacts. Faculty from the five participating campuses will present findings that assess the effects of California’s voting rights expansions.

This monthly educational series is an exploration of the science of human lactation which aims to deepen understanding and explain our shared clinical observations.
