Ongoing Research & Working Papers
Partisan Poll Watchers and Americans' Beliefs about Electoral Integrity
With Mollie Cohen
This is an ongoing project focused on how partisan poll watchers shape Americans' perceptions of fairness and electoral integrity. To date, we have collected data from three conjoint experiments administered on large national samples to examine this question. Our design randomizes a variety of features of polling locations, including the types of poll watchers, voter registration requirements, and voter identification requirements.
