Zusammenfassung

Dass ein großer Teil der Bevölkerung nicht wählen geht, stellt für die Politikwissenschaft ein Rätsel dar. Die Einflussfaktoren von Nichtwahl sind zahlreich und werden in der Literatur kontrovers diskutiert. Im Rahmen des vorliegenden Literaturberichts werden die relevanten Studien zu den Zusammenhängen zwischen Nichtwahl und den Einflussgrößen Bildung, Alter, Wahlnorm und Wahlpflicht diskutiert und systematisiert. Auch die Veröffentlichungen zu den möglichen Konsequenzen niedriger Wahlbeteiligung werden näher beleuchtet. Es zeigt sich, dass in der Literatur noch viel Unstimmigkeit herrscht und die Systematisierung weiterer Forschung notwendig ist.

The Nonvoter: Still an “Unknown Entity”

Abstract

The question why such a large proportion of the population do not participate in elections is still puzzling political scientists. The factors influencing voter turnout are numerous and have become the subject of controversial debate. In this review, relevant studies on the connections between voter turnout and the independent variables education, age, civic duty and compulsory voting are discussed and systematized. Also, publications on the possible consequences of a low turnout are examined in greater detail. This shows that there are still many discrepancies in the literature and that the systematization of further research is necessary.
