Voting Behavior and Punitive Policies

Prof. Ariel White, assistant professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will deliver a lecture "Voting Behavior and Punitive Policies"  on Thursday, March 15, at 5:00 PM at SUNY New Paltz in Lecture Center, Room 102. Prof. White will discuss her research into two headline-generating trends that may at first glance seem unrelated: U.S. incarceration rates that are among the highest of any developed nation, and disaffection from government leading to low voter participation, including in New York State, which has one of the lowest voter turnout rates in the country.
