Chapter Spotlight

Virginia SSN Builds Trust in Elections at Local Level

About the chapter

The Virginia SSN Chapter was launched in 2021 to create a community of scholars to inform policymakers and journalists about research that can be applied to public discourse and policy decisions.  We work with scholars from higher education institutions across Virginia and believe that a more informed citizenry and more informed policy making improves policy outcomes for our communities and our state.
