What Happened? A Political Scientist Looks at the 2020 Election

Thank you again to everyone who volunteered with us in the 2020 election! We couldn’t have flipped Wisconsin without you!

We’re excited to invite you all to join us next month for an in-depth analysis of the election by our special guest, Barry Burden, UW Professor of Political Science, Lyons Family Chair in Electoral Politics and Director of the Elections Research Center. Professor Burden plans to leave plenty of time for questions.
