This paper reports an analysis of who votes in eight East Asian countries, based on self-reported turnout data collected by the Asian Barometer Surveys for over 10,105 voting-aged individuals. The major findings are that institutional variables appear to have much stronger effects than individual-level variables on the likelihood of voting in these democracies, which is consistent with some other comparative analyses of turnout in other geopolitical regions.
