APSA is currently accepting submissions for the 2020 installment of the APSA Election Reflection Series. Election reflections are scholarly reflections, original research notes, and classroom exercises that shed light upon political behavior, public opinion and the 2020 Campaign and Election season. Submissions can address the 2020 local, state, or national campaigns and elections.
We are especially interested in featuring content that addresses the political behavior and public opinion of individuals from the following groups: underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, women, individuals with disabilities, first-generation Americans, the Indigenous community, and the LGBTQ community. We also welcome submissions that include reflections on race, power, governance, racial and social injustice and oppression, COVID-19, and securing free, fair and open elections –in relation the 2020 election season.
