July 14, 2016 Leave a comment

It was a pleasure to talk with my friend and colleague, Barry Burden, the Founding Director of the Elections Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As part of my summer guest hosting gig at 89.9 WORT’s “A Public Affair,” we talked about his excellent work on voter ID laws, poll workers, electoral reforms, and voting behavior and how that work relates to major changes in Wisconsin election laws. We also talked about the election season and took a few calls.
