What Research Reveals About Why We Vote



How do people go about deciding whether or not to vote?  Come hear a brief talk about some of the scholarship on this decision-making process and its implications on our electoral discourse and our political representation.  Then discuss the research, your own motivations for choosing whether or not to vote and how that relates with recent studies.  You may be surprised by what the science says about how your motivation relates to your political preferences.








Dr. Ernest B. McGowen, III   

Assistant Professor, University of Richmond

Sipping a glass of water at these free, open-to-the-public gatherings is completely copacetic.

Should you wish to quench your thirst another way (like with something from The Camel's 28 taps) or enjoy some good eats, you'll need to bring some moola.

We moved because we are now part of Science Matters and Community Idea Stations!


Science Pub RVA connects curious citizens and creative scientists over a sip of some sort at informal gatherings in non-academic settings. No background in science is needed.  A smidge of curiosity is all it takes to enjoy a fun and engaging time.  Pub is in our name, but sipping a glass of water at these events is completely copacetic.
