Candidates' Title and Voting Behavior in Brazil(2022_2_40_005)


What kind of impact do candidates’ attributes have on voting behavior when candidates advertise the attributes through their title? Brazilian electoral law posits a unique rule in which candidates can use “other names” such as business names and nicknames for their electoral ballots and can run a campaign using their titles (e.g., “Pastor A”). Focusing on the case of Brazil, this study aims to uncover the mechanism by which voters collect information about candidates’ attributes.
