About Us

Polis: Center for Politics at Duke University runs the NC Politics 2020 website to provide the public with easy-to-access reference materials on North Carolina politics.

Why North Carolina? In addition to being Duke’s home, the state's demographics and history of political volatility make it a fascinating microcosm of the country.

Founded in 2015, Polis helps increase the understanding of politics, facilitate enriching political discourse, and prepare a new generation of leaders to engage in the political process.  Click here to learn more about our work, or e-mail us if you have questions.
