Abstract

Analysing data for the 1995 Regional Elections in Brussels we show how the layout of the ballot affects voting behaviour as reflected by the candidates' preferential votes. We discuss how this special case of Ballot Position Effects can be reconciled with existing models of (expressive) voting. Copyright 2003 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
