Early Election Returns and the Voting Behavior of Adolescent Voters
Mann, Leon; And Others
Journal of Applied Social Psychology, 1, 1, 66-75, Jan-Mar 71
High school students participated in a field experiment that tested the effects of exposure to early election returns in a nonpartisan referendum. Students in the brighter classes changed their vote less frequently, but when they changed their preferences they showed a greater bandwagon effect. Students in the classes of lower academic achievement changed their votes more frequently, but when they changed their preferences they showed a greater underdog effect. (Author/MB)
