Assessing Voting Trends in the 2008 Mayo By-Election

By James S. Page

Abstract

By-elections offer a tempting opportunity to assess voting trends, although variables such as low voter turnout and increased number of candidates make assessment of trends difficult. This study uses the precentage of mean first preference vote share as a mechanism for assessing voting trends from the 2008 Mayo By-election
