Sammanfattning

The watershed is the electoral reform of concurrent elections in 1970 transforming regional elections from mid-term county council elections to elections held simultaneous to national and local elections. Results lend some support of nationalization effects, but also challenges the second-order election model in that turnout was high and government parties did not experience vote share losses in the pre-1970 period. From the late 1980s and onwards, government parties experienced vote share losses in county council elections, turnout varied and ticket-split voting increased. Electoral supply is important: Some new parties are using the sub-state elections as stepping-stones, but more often emerging parties are single-issue parties targeting a specific political level and thus not a reflection of second-order election effects.
