Descriptive Elections: Empowering the American Electorate

Descriptive Elections: Empowering the American Electorate

This book presents a theory of descriptive elections that posits that mixed-gender elections see higher voter turnout and voter engagement (lower alienation and indifference and higher interest) as well as greater discussion of campaign issues. They test this theory by examining congressional, gubernatorial, and state legislative races and find that descriptive elections see higher levels of voter participation and engagement but differ little from other elections in issue focus.
