Abstract

Voter behavior is a subject almost everybody has an opinion about. Due to extensive mass media attention for all kinds of election surveys in the periods just before and after elections, but in the years in between as well, many general notions on individual behavior in elections exist. Examples are the idea that workers vote for the labor party and are less likely to cast a vote in case of bad weather, or that people with high incomes are more right-wing than people with low incomes.
