Gadarian article on how information helps voters published in UAR

Gadarian,-Shana"Voting Can Be Hard, Information Helps," co-authored by Shana Gadarian, was published in Urban Affairs Review. Americans are often faced with low-information conditions when voting. The authors found that in these conditions, voters use candidates’ race, ethnicity, and gender as cues for whom to support — penalizing candidates of color and benefiting women. They also demonstrated that providing even a small amount of information to voters — such as candidate occupation — virtually erases the effects of candidate demographics on voter behavior, even among voters with high levels of racial and gender prejudice. 03/15/19
