Abstract: The purpose of this research was to investigate the influence of time perspective on vote likelihood for a political candidate. Time perspective refers to how variations in time frame such as a present frame (i.e., today) or a future frame (i.e., a year from now) influence voter choices and evaluations. Four experiments provide evidence that time perspective changes vote likelihood and explain how this process occurs. Study 1 shows that time perspective changed vote choice for a known candidate and that attitudes became more extreme (i.e., polarized) in the present and less extreme (i.e., moderated) in the future. Study 2 shows that time perspective affects vote choice for an unknown candidate and similar to Study 1, polarization and moderation effects were observed in the present and in the future, respectively. The hypothesis for this attitude change is based on the information that people use when making evaluations for the present and for the future. Study 3 shows implicit evidence that voters use different types of information in the present and in the future and Study 4 provides explicit evidence of how voters use information in the present and in the future.

Abstract: By applying a mechanism-based approach to the debate on stratification and vote choice, this study uncovers two cross-pressuring mechanisms that are disregarded in the variable-based approach that dominates the field: economic voting and status voting. Using survey data collected in the United States (N = 2,006), we show that both types of voting behavior were simultaneously relevant in the presidential elections of 2012: the economically weak (strong) voted for the Democratic (Republican) candidate because of economic egalitarianism (laissez-faireism), while those with high (low) levels of cultural capital translated their cultural progressiveness (conservatism) into support for the Democratic (Republican) candidate. Whereas previous studies, which focused on the direct relationship between stratification and vote choice, often concluded that the electoral relevance of economic inequalities has waned, our mechanism-based approach instead demonstrates that economic voting is still highly salient in contemporary American politics, but operates in the shadow of even more salient status voting. We discuss the broader relevance of our findings, which inform various scholarly debates, including discussions on the culture wars and the ‘Kansas hypothesis’.

Abstract: Over the past decade, there has been much talk in the media about 'red' and 'blue' states; states that are electorally uncompetitive in presidential elections. Even with recent efforts to create national standards for voting machinery and personnel, states still have variations in their voting patterns. This paper seeks to determine what role this electoral competitiveness or uncompetitiveness, as the case may be, plays in making a state's voters choose to vote absentee. Using state by state election data from the 2000, 2004. amd 2008 presidential elections, this paper seeks to determine what role electoral competition, the relative strengths of the two major parties in each of the fifty states, and the states' political culture contribute in the variation in states' numbers of absentee voters.

Abstract: Vote Advice Applications (VAAs) such as the EUprofiler in the European elections are the most often used political websites during election campaigns, especially in multiparty systems. This article investigates whether the use of VAAs has an impact on the vote for different types of VAA-users that were identified in previous research: checkers, doubters and seekers. The study is based on two 3 wave panel surveys for the Dutch national election campaigns of 2010 and 2012, each with a pre-campaign wave to measure prior vote intention, a pre-election wave to measure VAA-use and advice obtained from VAAs, and a post-election wave to measure the actual vote. The research results show a huge impact of VAAs, who thereby contribute to electoral volatility and fragmentation, even when controlled for the prior vote, prior issue preferences, and horse race news. “Seekers” use VAAs most often, but the “doubters” are influenced most heavily by VAA-advice.
