Post-Election Conference


Overview of the Program

The Dole Institute hosts a comprehensive biennial Post-Election Conference following each national election. It’s a fascinating two-day discussion on how and why elections are won and lost. A goal of Bill Lacy’s since he joined the Dole Institute in 2004, the Post-Election Conference first commenced in December 2006 and includes state and national strategists, pollsters, journalists and campaign officials.
