Screenshot 2020 11 18 at 16.54.38Over the past two weeks, we have all been following the results of the US presidential election closely. But on 3 November American citizens voted on much more than a President. In 32 states, voters also got to decide on over 120 ballot measures.

Join us for a webinar during which we’ll have a closer look at direct democracy in the US and what was on the ballot beyond the choice of a president:

"Every vote counts - Looking at ballot measures during the US elections"

Tuesday 1 December, from 18h-20h CET
