VOWHYNOT
Reason why eligible voter did not vote

Codes

This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.

Description

If an individual reported that he/she was registered to vote, but did not vote in the most recent November election, they were asked for the reason why they did not vote. New responses were added with each sample from 1996 until 2000, so some responses might not be available in earlier samples.

Users should note that there are a number of observations each year that have an NIU code for VOWHYNOT even though they respond that they were registered but did not vote. This comes from the original data in which blanks and Not in Universes were given the same code.

This variable is part of the Voter Supplement.

Comparability

Not all responses from later years are available for 1996 or 1998, but the available responses are comparable to later years.

Universe

  • Citizens age 18+ who registered but did not vote.
