Professors Alan Gerber and Greg Huber of Yale University are leaders in the field of experimental political science. With support from the Hewlett Foundation, they will undertake randomized experiments in two to three states to test whether and how it is possible to increase turnout in primary elections so the primary electorate is more representative of the general electorate. Should this prove to be feasible, it would set the stage for a broader research program with practical applications that others could use to increase primary turnout.
