Guide and Examples from APSA website:

General Format

A parenthetical citation is set off at the end of a sentence by parentheses. The usual format, which refers to the work and the overall ideas of the work as a whole, requires only the last name of the author(s), editor(s), or translator(s) and the year of publication (n.d. if there is no date, forthcoming if it is forthcoming). The terms ed. or eds. and trans., which are abbreviated in the reference list, are omitted from parenthetical citations. No comma should be placed between the last name and the year of publication.

(Arena 2014) (Durant n.d.)

Page or chapter numbers must be included for quotes, and should be included to point to specific data sets, ideas, or to avoid ambiguity. The numbers should point to a specifically contextual page or range of pages. The page numbers can be cited as either inclusive or nonconsecutive page numbers. No comma should be placed between the last name and the year of publication, but a comma should be placed after the year before page or chapter numbers.

(Jentleson 2015, 12–14) (Fraser 1989, 304, 308)

With two or three authors, cite all names each time (15.27). Use and, not an ampersand (&).

(Dodd and Oppenheimer 1977) (Roberts, Smith, and Haptonstahl 2016)

When four or more authors are cited, et al. (in roman type) should follow the first author’s name, even in the first reference, unless the author is in multiple references where the et al. would not be the same, in which case use the first and second author’s last names before et al. (and so on) or a shortened title in quotes preceded by a comma (15.29).

(Angel et al. 1986)

When multiple sources are cited together, they are included in the same parentheses, but separated by semicolons. They should be alphabetized.

(Hochschild 2015; Jentleson 2015) (Hauck 2000; Hauck and Vogelsong 2005; Hauck, Smith, and Vogelsong 2010; Jordan et al. 1999, 56–58; Walthall 2012)

Citations of multiple sources by the same author, but published in different years, can omit the name with the second source and beyond.

(Barbarosa 1973; 1978) (Barbarosa 1973, 18; 1978, 32)

If two or more sources are published by the same author in the same year, add lowercase letters to the publication year. To determine how to label the sources with the letters, alphabetize them by title (15.20).

(Frankly 1957a, 1957b)


List of References is required, in APSA style. (See footnotes in the back of Morone’s By the People and the APSA Style page: to answer questions about how to do this.


States to be addressed:

North Carolina


Predict which way that state will vote in your 1st sentence of the paragraph for that state.

You may not say it could go either way. You must make a prediction.

After you have made the prediction, in the next sentence briefly set out the 3 POLS reasons (by descriptive name only in this sentence (Example: voter history in that state).

Then, and most importantly, explain the reasoning that supports the position you have taken for each of the 3 reasons you gave. You may need to use additional paragraphs for some of the explanations. Explain each fully. Cite your sources!

Summarize your essay after you have addressed each of the 8 states by using a concluding paragraph to say who will win the presidency/electoral college vote based on the predictions made. You can put your personal opinions here and may use 1st person in this paragraph only.

Go back and write a brief introductory paragraph for your essay at the beginning.
