This open lecture is part of the combined research colloquium of the Political Science & Sociology Departments of the JFK-I.

You may find all lectures that are part of this series here, as well as an overview here.


Michael Herron has taught at Dartmouth College since 2003 as the Remsen 1943 Professor of Government. He received his doctorate from Stanford University in 1998 and currently works on issues related to election administration. He has published on election lines, the effects of ballot formats, election fraud, and absentee voting.

As an expert on the topic, Herron appeared at a U.S. House hearing on June 11, 2021 on voting rights, testifying that limits on early voting, restrictions on absentee ballots, and changes in polling locations impose a greater burden on black and minority voters’ participation in elections than on non-minority voters. The hearing on the John Lewis Voting Rights bill, held by the House Committee on Administration’s elections subcommittee, included testimony from 10 elections experts, including academics, election administrators, voting rights lawyers, and civil society researchers.
