Mere Measurement, Implementation Intentions, and Voter Turnout
A quarter-century of research on consumer behavior and social psychology suggests that voting and similar socially-desirable behaviors can be influenced by two treatments: mere measurement, the effects of which on voting have been tested to varying degrees, and implementation intentions, the effects of which remain uninvestigated. Randomized experiments conducted during the 2006 US midterm election and the 2005 German federal election were analyzed in order to estimate the turnout effects of these two simple treatments: asking people if and how they intend to vote.
