The Swiss Electoral Studies (Selects) is the main academic project to study electoral behaviour in Switzerland. This funding application for the next Selects project period includes the necessary financial resources for the data collection around the 2015 Swiss national election with the following components:- A post-election survey with about 3200 interviews including a specific survey Swiss living abroad.- A candidate survey among all candidates running for the election to the national council and the Council of States.- A rolling cross section survey (RCS) to study the influence of the campaign dynamic on voting behaviour with a pre and a post-electoral component.A core questionnaire of the post-election survey will comprise a set of standard questions that have been included in Selects since 1995 and are also part of many other national election studies. New questions will be included after an open call for modules and a peer review process to ensure innovation in electoral research in an open and transparent way. The relatively small Selects project staff at FORS ensures the overall planning and coordination of the entire operations of Selects of the various data collections. Three doctoral students which will be located at different universities to strengthen the network of electoral research in Switzerland make it possible to run the different surveys in a short period of time and at the same time help building future generations of electoral researchers as it has been done in previous years.Publications out of Selects in the next three years include a special issue from the 2011 election studies, the finalisation of the PhD thesis from the 2011 Selects wave, a brochure with first results from the 2015 elections for a broader audience as well as individual papers and articles of thematic and methodological nature.
