The 2016 general election defied the expectations of many and received extensive analysis by political analysts and the media. But there is still much to be learned about how voter turnout across the U.S. impacted results at the presidential and state level. Dr. Mindy Romero will present new CCEP research that takes a deep dive into the voter turnout data of swing states, identifying both the typically expected, as well as unique patterns that were present in some states, particularly for underrepresented populations in the electorate, including Latino and youth. Romero will discuss what these findings could mean for the growing expectations for the 2018 election on both ends of the political spectrum.
