AK Wahlen paper on ticket-splitting in Germany
12 June 2015
At the Session of the AK “Wahlen und politische Einstellungen (the German specialist group on election, electoral behaviour and political attitudes) I had the opportunity to present a paper on split-ticket voting in Germany. In this paper I find that there is more strategic voting in the direct candidate votes than in the list votes, but that most split-ticket voting appears to be non-strategic.
Currently there is only the German version (which I hope be able to translate soon for an international conference) “Strategisches Wählen und Stimmen-Splitting in gemischten Wahlsystemen: Der Finite-Mixture Ansatz am Beispiel der deutschen Bundestagswahlen von 2009 und 2013”.
