Electoral Studies

In a federal system of representative democracies, of layered, intersecting constitutional republics, in “government of the people, by the people, and for the people,” in the commonwealths that comprise and constitute the public sphere of civic life, the indispensable, principal, constituent element and ultimate arbiter of political power is the electorate.

A full participation in free & fair elections and the peaceful transition of power are hallmarks of a well ordered and high functioning civil society. Where the inverse is true, the opposite is the case.

Given the fundamental significance of a fluent intimacy in the practical and applied democratic process, from civic education & political organization, to voter registration, campaigns, and the administration of free & fair elections, the center of study and practice in Electoral Studies (ES) is formed to give careful attention to the health & well being of the entirety of the electorate and the electoral process at the local, regional, state, and federal levels.
