Welcome to The Ballot Box, a blog dedicated to covering the presidential election in key swing states — Pennsylvania and Florida — and the unlikely swing district of Omaha, Neb. Reporters will file dispatches from cities throughout Pennsylvania, and from Tampa and Omaha. Using photos, videos and interviews, Ballot Box reporters cover the decision-making process of some of the most sought-after voters in the country.

The Ballot Box is an effort of the graduate students of Professors John Dinges and Dody Tsiantar at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York.

If you have any questions or comments about our coverage, please feel free to contact our site’s managing editors. Of course, we welcome your comments on individual postings.
