AAUW branch to hear election analysis

The Ann Arbor Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) will hear an analysis of the 1980 Presidential elections at the Thursday, Nov. 20, branch meeting.

The program will begin at 8 p.m. at the Women’s City Club, 1830 Washtenaw Ave. Dessert will follow the presentation.

Speaking on “Problems and Prospects for American Electoral Policies in 1980" will be Michael W. Traugott, senior study director of the U-M Institute for Social Research Center for Political Studies.

Traugott received his bachelor’s degree in political science from Princeton University, where he was honored with the Philo Sherman Bennett Prize in Politics. He received his M.A., also in political science, from the University of Michigan. He was awarded his Ph.D. in 1974 and wrote his thesis on “An Economic Model of Voting Behavior." While at Michigan, he became a member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honorary.

Traugott has vast experience in analyzing the electoral process analysis through research and paper presentations. He has served as an election consultant to the Gallup organization, ABC, and this past summer, the Detroit News where he is continuing as a political columnist. He will also talk on election reforms.
