Two weeks before the election, DC-AAPOR offers an event where top pollsters give their thoughts on who will win the election and how they make those calls.

If you follow the Upshot's poll comparison site or Huffington Post's Pollster, then this event is for you. We bring together polling experts to discuss two topics on the minds of all who follow the polls. The first session will discuss the role for telephone surveys in the polls of the future. The second session will discuss the methods used by poll aggregators to produce state and national estimates for the presidential race. The evening will conclude with a happy hour.

Join DC-AAPOR colleagues at Microsoft's K Street offices to learn more about present and future methods in polling and continue the discussion during a happy hour with complimentary drinks and snacks afterwards. Register for this event on Eventbrite.

The Mitofsky Award will be given at the annual Roper Center dinner - and this year it is in Washington, DC on November 16. If you've been in the past, you know that it is a great party - and a great way to support the important work of the Roper Center in archiving and making accessible public opinion data of many kinds.

This year we are delighted the Mitofsky Award honoree will be Jim Stimson, a brilliant example of a scholar whose work has used the Roper archives extensively.

You can get tickets to the dinner and/or learn about how to sponsor the event here.

Before the dinner, please join us for this free DC-AAPOR and Roper Center co-sponsored event. To register, click here.

This event is an opportunity to gather with colleagues and industry leaders to look back over the year, digest the recent election results, and examine implications for our profession and for the next administration. There will be plenty of time for discussion to hear from the many pollsters and consultants in town for the Roper Center's Mitofsky Award Dinner. This postmortem's panel will include several distinguished guests, including Susan Page, David Winston, Celinda Lake, and Frank Newport. The panel will be chaired by Susan Pinkus.
