Abstract

Lauri Rapeli, Mikko Mattila, and Achillefs Papageorgiou combine two panel surveys, conducted in the UK between 1991 and 2017, to examine the impact of unemployment, retirement, changes in partnership status, moving and disability on voting. They find that turnout declines with divorce; for other life events, the impacts diverge across the voter groups they identify.
