Abstract

What affects public support for electoral reform? Abigail Heller argues that experience with an electoral system similar to that under consideration affects public opinion by reducing uncertainty about the likely effects of reform, thus affecting support for change. Such experience is particularly important in the absence of strong party cues, as was the case with Labour during the 2011 Alternative Vote referendum.
