Bernard Fraga's research interests are in the areas of American political behavior, electoral politics and policy, and racial and ethnic politics. Broadly, Professor Fraga studies the ways in which distinctive features of the American electoral system shape who participates in the political process. His most recent project examines how the demographic and partisan composition of congressional districts impacts who votes and who runs for office. A second project explored the effect of electoral competition on voter turnout. Professor Fraga received his BA from Stanford University, and his MA and PhD from Harvard University.
