An Emory University political science professor will discuss the upcoming midterm elections and Georgia politics at a Feb. 22 Sandy Springs event.

Professor Alan Abramowitz.

Alan Abramowitz’s appearance is part of the “TE Talks” public lecture series at Temple Emanu-El. He will speak on the topic, “Voting in a Polarized Era: The Outlook for the 2018 Midterm Elections,” as well as answering audience questions.

“Midterm elections” refers to elections that happen halfway through a U.S. president’s four-year term, especially U.S. Congressional elections, where the opposition party typically makes gains.
