14.9 Pinni B 3107: Mobilizing the Young Vote: Direct Mail Guides in the 2015 Chicago Mayoral Election

Peter Miller, Rebecca Reynolds, and Matthew Singer

 

Previous studies have shown nonpartisan direct mail solicitations have a small turnout effect. It is less clear, however, what effect these solicitations have with regard to the cognitive mobilization of young voters. We report the results of a large (N=52,324) experiment conducted during the February 2015 municipal election in Chicago. A random sample of 22,179 voters between 18 and 30 were sent a voter guide containing a list of endorsements and policy positions for each of the five candidates for mayor. We find turnout among the treated group was 0.9 percentage points higher than the control group (33.6% compared to 32.7%, p<0.025). We find, however, that young voters in Chicago census tracts with above-median household income are significantly more likely to vote after receiving the voter guide treatment than voters in lower-income census tracts.
