Voting Advice Applications 2020

The project explores how voting advice applications (VAA) are used in Finnish elections. COMET conducts the project together with the Faculty of Management at the University of Tampere. COMET analyzes VAAs from the point of view of their production and journalistic use. The Faculty of Management explores how the voters and candidates use VAAs and what they think about them.
