Stirling joins Columbia journalism to lead voting access investigation

Ex Star-Ledger reporter to work as project editor

By David Wildstein, January 07 2020 2:06 pm

Former Star-Ledger reporter Stephen Stirling is joining the Columbia Journalism Review where he will work as a project editor for a year-long investigation into voting access issues across the country in advance of the upcoming presidential election.

“It’s a huge issue heading into the 2020 elections,”  Stirling said on Twitter.  “There’s a lot of ground to cover and it really remains a darkened corner of our democracy, but I’m so excited to dig in.”

Stirling said he will be working with other news organizations as the leader of a team that includes Lizzie Mulvey and Catharina Felke.

“As with all my projects, data will give our work a strong backbone, but ground truth will be critical as we follow the roads it lays out,” Stirling said.  “Much more to come. Even more to do. But I’ve never started a year with a stronger sense of purpose.”

Sterling ended a decade-long stint at the Star-Ledger last month.
