Election Night News and Voter Turnout: Solving the Projection Puzzleby William C. Adams
Pub. Date: 07/30/2005
Publisher: Lynne Rienner Publishers, Inc.
Concerns first rose in the 1960s that when television networks proclaimed US presidential election winners before the western states were finished voting, some people would decide to stay home, thus decreasing voter turnout; and the controversy was reignited by funny business during the 2000 and 2004 elections. Adams (public policy and public administration, George Washington U.) looks at the issue in order to understand it better, rather than necessarily to provide a solution.
