Congressional Elections and Vote-Splitting: Candidate Panel
The Center for Election Science
Congressional primaries are ground zero for vote-splitting. Our recent analysis shows that the problem is getting worse. Increasingly crowded primaries leave general election voters to choose between candidates who don’t represent the electorate’s views.
Join us for our special panel to discuss our broken congressional primaries with three former candidates who ran in contests defined by vote-splitting.
Dr. Timothy Kane (OH-12)
Jana Sanchez (TX-06)
Kristine Reeves (WA-10)
Our panelists will share their stories about what it’s like to run in a crowded field when every voter is forced to choose just one.
