Federalist institutions, voting behavior, and party systems in Spain
Abbreviated Journal Title
With the establishment of the 17 autonomous communities in Spain in the early 1980s, representation has been compounded. This articles assesses the empirical implications of-compounded representation in Spain by analyzing regional, national, and European electoral data over time. Comparisons are also drawn across Spanish regions. In addition, the article discusses the effects of compounded representation on party systems and government formation in the regions. Voting patterns vary: depending on the level of electron and also across regions. Party systems, subjective regional identity, and types of government in the regions are linked as well. The evidence suggests that the federalization of Spain has compounded representation by adding new layers of elections and representative institutions.
