American citizens aged 18 and over are invited to participate in an election campaign study at the University of Iowa. The study, which seeks to understand voter decision making, is being conducted by David Redlawsk, assistant professor of political science in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Eligible participants must be U.S. citizens of voting age. Participants will come to the campus in Iowa City where they will spend approximately two hours involved in a presidential election campaign simulation, learning about fictitious candidates and deciding which candidate they favor. Participants will answer questions about their decision making processes to help researchers understand how voters make choices during a campaign.
