about this item

Elections are not just about who casts ballots – they reflect the citizens, parties, media, and history of an electorate.Fighting for Votes examines how these factors interacted during a recent Ontario election. Drawing on a wealth of sources, the authors ask three questions: How do parties position themselves to appeal to voters? How is information from and about parties transmitted to voters? How do voters respond to the information around them? The result is a sophisticated analysis of how parties influence voters in an era where Twitter feeds and other new media are reshaping the electoral landscape.
