The Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy (CSED) is a nonpartisan center that seeks to increase knowledge about the practice of American democracy. CSED is committed to the production and dissemination of research that meets high academic standards, is useful to policy makers, and informs citizens. CSED-sponsored research has been published by leading academic journals and presses in the areas of campaign finance, voting technology and election reform, presidential and congressional elections, religion and politics, and democratic deliberation. CSED scholars frequently provide expert commentary on national and local politics in areas related to their research.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

CSED recently sponsored the American Family Survey with The Deseret News.  A summary of the findings can be found here.  News coverage of the survey can be found here.
