Scholar Spotlight: Michael McDonald
- Revitalizing U.S. Democracy
- State & Local Government
The midterm elections are about a month away, so this week's scholar spotlight shines on Michael McDonald, a professor at the University of Florida and leader of the United States Elections Project. His research on American voter demographics has been key to tracking how primary elections are stacking up and what that means for November's ballots. Lately, the New York Times used Michael's work to analyze midterm early voting turnout, and he was quoted in Talking Points Memo to explain Florida's voter disenfranchisement.
