Data Extract: Did you vote for a candidate of the same gender as you?

For the third time, the Election Study Consortium will conduct a national election study in Finland after the parliamentary election has been held. Main themes will include candidate choice, voting, social media, election campaign financing and impact of the campaign financing debate. The study will also examine equality, representativeness and the impact of polls. National election studies are archived at and disseminated by the FSD.
