*Title:* *Behavioral Applications of Voter Files*
*Abstract:* Over the last decade, state-level voter registration records
have become a regular source of data in research in political behavior. The
research value in voter files typically depends on the ability to link the
voter files to external sources of data. In this presentation, I will
describe several approaches to using voter files in behavioral research. I
will focus on the practice of record linkage and demonstrate a range of
substantive questions that can be answered with these voter files.
Substantive topics include the study of geography, family networks, the
effects of terrorist activities, partisan bias in medical treatment,
religious civic engagement, and voter suppression/access laws.
