Description

This study conducted a comparative analysis between the United States and New Zealand looking at campaign finance laws. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of the United States adopting similar campaign finance laws as the ones in New Zealand, the least corrupt nation in the world, and to see how these laws would look in the United States. The comparative analysis was done using qualitative data derived from the nations' laws and scholarly journals about these laws. After establishing the comparative analysis between the two nations, the paper looked at campaign finance laws and voter efficacy. Using quantitative data including a 2011 Worlds Value Survey and voter turnout records, the study answered the question, “Do campaign finance regulations affect how citizens view their government?”

The paper upon which this poster was based was written for the Senior Capstone course in Political Science.
