Recognition for Past Work as Registrar of Voters in San Mateo County

I WAS PROUD to recently receive the "Public Service" Award from the American Political Science Association, Experimental Research Section at their annual meeting in San Francisco.

The award recognizes a special form of public service, the facilitation of randomized experiments in political science by those outside the academy. Considerations in the evaluation of nominees for this award include:

1. their generosity with time, resources, and data; and

2. their willingness to permit research transparency (e.g., allowing researchers to publish research without regard to how the results come out.)

Thank you to Professor Melissa Michelson for nominating me - and thanks to the association for the recognition of my work several years ago as San Mateo County Registrar of Voters.
