Zusammenfassung

365体育网站Die Vereinigten Staaten sind nicht zuletzt aufgrund ihrer langen Tradition regelmäßiger, kompetitiver Wahlen ein Vorbild für viele junge Demokratien. Zugleich werden Wahlen weitgehend von einzelstaatlichen Gesetzen reguliert, was zahlreiche Möglichkeiten schafft, diese zum eigenen machtpolitischen Vorteil zu beeinflussen. Inwiefern versuchen Politiker∗innen ihre Macht durch Veränderung dieser demokratischen Spielregeln auszubauen und wie verfolgen sie ihre Interessen innerhalb dieser Regeln? Um dieser Frage nachzugehen, werden die für die demokratische Teilhabe grundlegenden Regularien des Wahlrechts, des Wahlsystems sowie der Umgang mit ihnen in der politischen Praxis vorgestellt. Dabei werden auch die Erklärungsfaktoren von Wahlbeteiligung und Wahlverhalten sowie die daraus resultierenden Anreizstrukturen behandelt.
