dc.description.abstractThis paper reviews the literature surrounding the area of voting research. Articles are usually focused on one area of voting research. Models of vote choice may include many variables but will usually be assessing the influence of one variable in particular. While this literature is vast, I have identified seven areas I found to be the subject of much interest to researchers. I discuss these using examples from the literature. Lastly, {have compiled a general comparison of various papers and publications, focusing on what each study considers to be the main determinant of vote choice.en_NZ
