DeVOTE is a research project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) running from January 2021 to December 2025. The project is hosted by the Department of Government at the University of Vienna, a vibrant political science department dedicated to excellence in research and teaching. A research team led by the Principal Investigator Ass.-Prof. Carolina Plescia aims to provide first-time evidence on what ‘voting’ means for ordinary citizens.

Looking at what voting means for citizens in a variety of countries promises to provide a ground-breaking understanding of citizen-conceptualizations of representation and the psychology of voting that can challenge conventional wisdom about participation and voting as well as lead to practical implications for how elections are run and administered.
