Abstract

Older people are more likely to vote and highly educated people are more likely to vote: these are electoral phenomena common in advanced democracies across the world. The UK stands out from its counterparts in some ways: we have a much wider gap in turnout between young and old, while the gap in turnout based on education is either much smaller or non-existent. Richard Berry and Anthony Mcdonnell investigate these trends, highlighting findings from the 2011 census, British Election Study and OECD data on voting patterns.
