Hello folks, I return to posting from RRH (not really a return, I lurk pretty regularly) briefly to appeal for some help.
I've been working on a paper this semester studying field experiments concerning voter preference (rather than voter mobilization). I've gathered up a number of studies and combed countless reference sections and abstracts for leads. I am satisfied with where I am at, but I am looking for a few studies that I know exist but cannot locate.
-David Nickerson on Democratic (partisan) mobilization efforts in Michigan in 2002. Green and Gerber claim there is a voter preference component to this study, but digging into the paper it seems the only discussion is of vote share rather than any real persuasion effects of the treatment. Am I just getting this wrong?
-Jennifer Steen / Donald Green in 2002 studying an incumbent Republican state Senator's direct mail campaign.
-Donald Green in 2006 studying an environmental group's email campaign
-David Nickerson and Keene in a 2012 working paper on a field experiment for a ballot proposition campaign. I can't find any manuscripts online, but I did find a few sentences about it in a Todd Rogers paper on ballot initiatives.
-David Nickerson in 2006 studying door-to-door in five Oregon state legislative races.
If anybody has seen a trace of these studies, please comment!
PS: The date the experiments were conducted often lag by a few years behind the actual date they are published in a given journal.
