“The Power of the Youth Vote”

Convocation with Mindy Romero, Founder & Director, California Civic Engagement Project

“The Power of the Youth Vote”

Romero’s research focuses on political behavior and race/ethnicity, and
seeks to explain patterns of voting and political under-representation,
particularly among youth and communities of color in California and the
U.S. Her publications explore the shifting landscape of political
representation in California, including the implications of a surging Latino
electorate and the often unintended consequences of voting reforms on
public participation in the electoral process. She is especially interested in
how voters perceive, engage in, and seek to reinvent the electoral process
using new technologies and forms of activism.

Post-convocation discussion: 1:30pm-2:30pm

Join us for informal conversation with Mindy about voting and
political underrepresentation among youth and communities of
color.

Moderated by Professor Melanie Freeze, Political Science.
