The Brookings Cafeteria

Oct 30, 2018

Randall Akee, a David M. Rubenstein Fellow in the Economic Studies program at Brookings, discusses new research on the relationship between household incomes and voting in the U.S. He and his co-researchers discovered that an increase in a child’s family income increases the likelihood that he or she becomes an active voter as an adult. Akee also discusses the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding North Dakota's requirement that voters have a street address, which may disenfranchise thousands of Native Americans who live on reservations.
