Abstract

In the talk we reviewed universal aspects of voting behavior in proportional elections and universality breaking patterns, as established in the existing literature. Focus was made on the Brazilian elections, which are characterized by compulsory voting. We showed how agent-based models can qualitatively and/or quantitatively reproduce the observed empirical distributions. As an example, we discussed the multi-state voter model over a network based on interacting cliques and zealot candidates. © 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
