About ESRA

The 3rd annual Election Sciences, Reform, and Administration conference takes place at the University of Pennsylvania on July 11-12, 2019.

The invitation-only conference brings together election experts from academia, state and local government, non-profits, and research institutes to develop empirical approaches to the study of how law and administrative procedures affect the quality of elections in the United States.

The conference is an opportunity for participants to engage with cutting-edge research about election administration and to discuss the challenges facing state and local election officials. The conference’s collaborative atmosphere also fosters connections between election administrators and election scientists, as between junior and senior scholars.

This year’s ESRA conference is organized by the Penn Program on Opinion Research and Election Studies and is generously supported by the organizations listed on the left.
