2016 Election Reflection Series 

Prior to the election, APSA’s Diversity and Inclusion Programs Office issued a call for scholarly reflections, original research notes, and classroom exercises that shed light upon diversity, political behavior, public opinion and the 2016 Campaign and Election. What resulted is series of 2016 Election Reflections, covering a range of election related topics and research methods. Read the 2016 Election Reflection Series as they appeared on PSNow.
