This is Behind the Story, a program where we take you straight to the source. In this episode we talk about all things elections. After a brief look at the November 3rd ballot items at a state level and local area elections, we’ll talk with Pat Flavin, an assistant professor of political science. We talk about political behavior, why voter turnout can be predictably low in local elections, and how voter turnout might look next year.
