Research shows that social media is a major influence on voter turnout.
A new study by researchers at UCSD offers detailed evidence that a non-partisan get-out-the-vote reminder on Facebook can also increase voter turnout– “about 340,000 more people turned out to the polls two years ago because of a single Facebook message posted” on Election Day.
Not only were Facebook users influenced by the get-out-the-vote message, the study argues that their friends, and the friends of their friends, were also influenced to vote.
A nudge online can cause a statistically significant number of people to be more likely to vote.
