LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 21, 2022) – Primary elections in Kentucky and across the country are only weeks away and this fall promises hotly contested mid-term contests, with control of the Congress in play for Democrats and Republicans. At the same time, states across the country – including Kentucky – are engaged in redistricting of federal and state legislative districts as required every 10 years following the national census.
UK Political Science Professor Stephen Voss has a distinct and deep perspective on all of these issues. Recently, he provided expert testimony as part of litigation over Kentucky’s legislative redistricting. He also has provided his insights on the effectiveness of messaging and ads appearing already in the race for mayor in Louisville.
In this episode of Behind the Blue, Voss discusses all of these issues as well as the national and state political landscape during a tumultuous period in Kentucky and across America.
