What to Expect this November: Demographic Change and California’s Shifting Political Landscape
with
Mindy Romero
Director of California Civic Engagement Project
Center for Regional Change
University of California, Davis

This November, voter turnout in California could be the lowest ever seen in a mid-term general election. Mindy Romero, Director of the California Civic Engagement Project of the UC Davis Center for Regional Change, will present new research on the relationship be-tween demographic change and low voter turnout in the state and discuss how both these factors might impact the upcoming election.
Mindy Romero is the founding director of the CRC's California Civic Engagement Project (CCEP). Mindy’s scholarly work focuses on the intersection of political behavior and race/ethnicity, with an emphasis on conducting re-search that has on-the-ground relevancy for California’s communities. Mindy has been invited to speak on issues of civic engagement and political rights, including testimony to the National Commission on Voting Rights and the California Legislature. Her research has been cited in numerous major news outlets, including the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, SF Chronicle, Politico and the Huffington Post.
