Twitter: @morganlyoncotti

Next time on Access Utah, we’ll preview the upcoming election with Morgan Lyon Cotti, Associate Director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah. We’ll talk about the art and science of polling, vote by mail, projected voter participation rates, and what’s on your 2020 ballot, including several proposed constitutional amendments. 


We'll also reach back into the archives from 2016 to hear part of a conversation with Ron Chernow, author of an biography on Alexander Hamilton.


Morgan Lyon Cotti serves as the Associate Director of the Hinckley Institute and manages the local and legislative internships. She also contributes to Hinckley Institute’s political analysis and research. She is a former Hinckley intern and holds a PhD in Political Science from George Washington University.
