We use multilevel logistics analysis method to answer this research. Required data is retrieved from IFLS 5 from household books and community books. Our findings are a muslim women, older Muslims, and Muslims living in the neighborhood of more Muslim percentages will tend to vote for candidates based on the same religion. However, an individual with a high level of education does not have a tendency to vote on the candidate's religion.
