About me

Introduction The Center for the Study of the American Electorate (CSAE) is the principal source for data and analysis of civic engagement in politics in the United States. Built upon the 30 years of work of the independent, non-partisan Committee for the Study of the American Electorate, the Center will continue to provide data and analysis of voter participation and other related issues, hold a major biennial conference on the state of American democracy, conduct forums on various issues relating to civic engagement, create high-level bi-partisan working groups to address fundamental problems underlying the increasing voter apathy and provide research to guide the deliberations of those groups. The Center is directed by Curtis Gans, a co-founder and director of CSAE and a recognized expert on civic participation issues.
