The 2018 Election Sciences, Reform, and Administration conference took place at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on July 26-27, 2018.

The invitation-only conference brought together political scientists, election professionals, and other experts in election administration to develop rigorous empirical approaches to the study of how law and administrative procedures affect the quality of elections in the United States. Participants identified major questions in the field, share new insights, foster collaboration between election administrators and election scientists, and connect senior and junior scholars.
