About the Program
With COVID-19 threatening the November election, many states are working to increase voting by mail. In California, 15 counties have already expanded alternatives to in-person voting, and while overall voter turnout was higher, groups such as foreign-language and young voters sometimes saw declines. Outreach by trusted messengers may help in targeting low-turnout groups. PPIC researchers Eric McGhee and Mindy Romero will present key findings on how voters reacted to the Voter’s Choice Act.
