Abstract [en]

This article explores why supporters of small, non-established parties choose to vote for different parties in the elections to the European Parliament (EP) and elections to the national parliament. It uses individual-level data with open-ended questions from an online survey on supporters of Feminist Initiative (Fi) – a comparatively small and new Swedish feminist party – to map voters’ own motivations for split-ticket voting in the 2014 elections. Contrary to expectations based on second-order election theory, it is found that voters ticket-split in both directions: there are those voting for Fi in the EP election but not in the national election, and those voting for Fi in the national election but not in the EP election. These voters take the same types of considerations into account but nevertheless end up making opposite voting decisions. Voters clearly distinguish between the two levels – for example, by prioritizing different issues.
