Voting in the U.S. midterm elections closed on Tuesday, and as of Sunday morning, November 13, Democrats secured another majority in the Senate. But ballots are still being counted in key races that will determine which party controls the House.  It is clear, however, that the margins determining leadership in both chambers will be extremely small. In order to explore how the elections may impact the legislative debate over tech policy issues, Tech Policy Press editor Justin Hendrix spoke with three experts from civil society groups that regularly engage with lawmakers to find what scenarios and considerations are front of mind, even as we wait for the final tally:

  • Emma Llansó, Director of the Free Expression Project, Center for Democracy and Technology
  • Yosef Getachew, Director of the Media and Democracy Program, Common Cause
  • Matt Wood, Vice President of Policy and General Counsel, Free Press
