Abstract: Prior to the April 1, 2014 elections in Wisconsin, randomized voter mobilization experiments were conducted in Stoughton and Oshkosh. Targets of a local membership organization were randomly assigned to treatment and control groups. In the three weeks leading up to Election Day, the treatment group received a face-to-face contact from the community membership organization encouraging them to vote in the spring election. Post-election, turnout records determined that the canvass successfully stimulated turnout among those who received a face-to-face contact from the community membership organization.

Abstract: This paper explores the effects of different appeals on the probability of a voter displaying a campaign sign in their front yard during an election. Conducting field experiments during a 2013 mayoral and borough council primary and general election in Pennsylvania, we tested the effects of three appeals to place yard signs for a slate of GOP and Democratic candidates. Initial results indicate a hometown appeal outperforms both a partisan and policy appeal. Thus, focusing on the community involvement of a candidate resonates with voters more than an appeal focused on the partisanship of the voter or a salient local policy issue. This paper contributes to the extant voter behavior literature, and, to the knowledge of the authors, is the first scholarly analysis of the effects of appeals on the placement of yard signs, which is a key advertising tool for campaigns at the local level.

Abstract: Research finds that a "well-conducted" door-to-door get-out-the-vote campaign can be expected to increase turnout by 7-12 percentage points. In a variety of field experiments conducted under the auspices of the California Votes Initiative, however, we have seen some efforts far exceed this, with an impact as large as 33 percentage points, while others have failed to have any effect whatsoever. We examine the details of various campaigns conducted in 2008 in order to determine the importance of social networks, organizational reputation and canvasser quality, among other measures, on the outcome of GOTV campaigns targeting low-propensity communities of color.

"Door to Door Surveys in St Louis County Hot Spots: Approaches Taken and Lessons Learned" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-10-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p666926_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Little has been written about the specific challenges to conducting door-to-door surveys in disadvantaged hot spots of crime. Yet, much needs to be considered, not only as it relates to maximizing the response rate, but also with respect to interviewer and resident safety, and even interviewer retention. While we acknowledge that approaches that provide excellent results in one area may not work well in another, we describe the approaches we undertook in St Louis County to complete two waves of surveys among residents in hot spots of crime. Our goal is to share these experiences as lessons learned in an effort to aid future researchers with solutions to their own surveying problems.
