Voter behavior.

Voting is a responsibility of a citizen. Everyone can register to vote unless they are convicted of a serious crime and haven't spent all their jail time.

Straight VS Split

Straight ticket is the practice of voting for every candidate that a political party has on a general election ballot.

Split ballot is when a voter chooses candidates from the same political party for every office on the ballot.

Ballot Fatigue

This is when there are several names on a political ballot, and voters choose to ignore some candidates when there are too many choices
