- Oh No! I've Accidentally Elected a Republican! The Effects of Nonpartisan Local Elections on City Council Partisan Composition
- Does the presence of party labels in local elections impact local partisan representation? We use data from over 15,300 U.S. city governments that includes election type and official/resident partisanship. We find that non-partisan elections allow minority party candidates to “sneak” into office in cities where their party is unpopular.
