- At Large But Not In Charge: How Formal Institutions Affect Minority Representation on U.S. City Councils
- Our research examines a huge nationwide sample of more than 14 thousand U.S. municipalities to examine a relationship between formal electoral institutions and minority representation. We find that on average, councils that elect their councilors by geographic electoral districts elect greater proportions of non-white representatives.
