Fuller, Bruce; And Others
This study of the impact of the student vote in California was based on a comprehensive analysis of 54,000 student votes. The precinct analysis method was utilized to examine the voting returns of precincts which contain very close to 100% student populations. Results of the study encompassed an overview of the student vote; voter turnout; presidential results; congressional, state senate, and assembly races; and state ballot propositions. Factors affecting how students vote included population, size, density and degree of isolation of the student community, selectivity of the colleges and academic characteristics of the student body; urbanization; geographic/regional location; and family income. Observations concerning the effects of the student vote in California indicated its importance. Tables summarizing the data are included. (MJM)
