PS Call for Papers Elections 2024  2

Call for Papers: PS Special Issue on Forecasting the 2024 US Elections

Forecasting of US elections has been a regular feature of PS since the 2004 contest. This special issue follows in this tradition, but seeks to open up the field to a still more diverse set of contributions. In a time of increasing ideological and affective polarization in the United States and growing concern over disinformation, it is also important to recognize the various challenges faced by forecasters in a highly partisan environment, one where suspicions of bias are not easily extinguished.

Submission Deadline: July 17, 2024
