Item description for Voter Turnout Since 1945: A Global Report by Bengt Save-Soderbergh...
This definitive compilation of voter statistics details voter turnout in more than 1,600 presidential and parliamentary elections in over 170 countries throughout the world since 1945. In addition to examining voting patterns between new and established democracies, the text evaluates difference in voter turnout on the basis of gender, socioeconomic status, and literacy level, and the potential impact of literacy levels, GNP, and civil liberties on political participation. The importance of voter registration as a precondition to exercising the franchise is discussed, and examples of voter registration from around the world, including case studies from the United States, South Africa, Guatemala, and Russia, are provided. Graphs, charts, and tables highlight trends in voter turnout and compare turnout between old and new democracies, and a color-coded world map, showing turnout percentages from the most recent national elections, is also enclosed.
