Cheryl Boudreau’s research examines whether and when different types of political information help voters to make informed political decisions.  She uses experiments in survey, laboratory, and field settings to investigate the effects that information like endorsements, voter guides, public opinion polls, and policy information have on voters’ decisions.  Her research sheds light on when these types of information help uninformed voters to behave as though they are more informed.  Boudreau currently serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Experimental Political Science, as well as an Associate Principal Investigator for Time-Sharing Experiments in the Social Sciences (TESS).  She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego and her B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis.  Her CV can be found here.
