GOVT 26 Elections and Reform

This course examines the problem of how politicians and policies are selected by citizens. Politicians fight tenaciously to shape the rules under which they compete because how elections are conducted has enormous impact on what sorts of choices voters are offered, what sorts of coalitions politicians form, and whose interests get represented. This course investigates what rules matter, and why. It draws from a broad array of cases to illustrate the most important issues at stake in current electoral reforms around the world, and here in the United States.

This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
