In the 1996 elections, voter turnout dipped below 50 percent. Could it drop even lower this November? The Vanishing Voter Project at Harvard University's Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy measures Americans' ongoing involvement in the 2000 presidential campaign. Every week until the election, the site will update its Voter Involvement Index, based on results from polls that cover the public's actions and thoughts in relation to current campaign coverage. Certain questions, such as whether people are following the campaign in the news, will be asked in every survey to track public sentiment. Other timely subjects related to the election and the campaign process will also be included in upcoming surveys.
