  1. Summary: We report on a series of lab experiments in which we model the behavior of voters and candidates in plurality elections. Candidates can choose to compete on their own or form alliances; voters can vote for one of the candidate/alliance. Compared to previous voting experiments, we consider the behavior of candidates and voters at the same time. We are thus closer to real-life elections. We find that the behavior of candidates and voters interact to reduce the effective number of candidates, but that the behavior of candidates is much more important in that respect.

  1. Summary: We report on an online experiment conducted before the 2014 European election. We aksed voters to report their vote intention assuming that some European deputies were elected in a pan-European district in which all European citizens would have a vote. We created pan-European party-lists based on real European party groups and deputies, and randomized, for each participant, the candidates appearing on the lists. We find that the vote choice on this new ballot is strongly affected by the nationality of candidates. Many voters are willing to pick a different party-list in order to support their co-nationals.
