Jessica Huseman is editorial director for Vote Beat. Previously, she covered voting rights and election administration for ProPublica. She was the lead reporter for ProPublica’s Electionland project, which helps hundreds of newsrooms across the United States cover ballot access issues in real time. The project has won awards from the Online News Association, the Global Editors Network and the Society for Professional Journalists.
Prior to covering elections, she covered health and education issues, especially those impacting children. A freelance piece she co-authored for ProPublica on nursing regulations sparked a bill in the New York Legislature that would provide additional oversight for nurses who have committed crimes or harmed patients.
She graduated with honors from the Stabile Program in Investigative Journalism at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, where she was the recipient of the Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship and the Fred M. Hechinger Award for Distinguished Education Reporting. Prior to becoming a journalist, she was a high school history teacher and debate coach in Newark, New Jersey.
