Welcome to the Centre for Voting and Parties
The Centre for Voting and Parties (CVAP) is a research centre that focuses on the study of the central institutions of modern representative democracy (elections, voters, electoral systems, parties, parliaments, governments, constitutions, etc.), and of the processes taking place subject to these institutions.
CVAP is part of the Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen and brings together researchers from the University of Copenhagen and other universities in Denmark and abroad around common research projects and activities.

Political campaigns use more and more resources, but knowledge on how they affect specifically Danish voters is practically non-existent. Centre for Voting and Parties has a research project running called OPEC (Online Panel of Electoral Campaigning). OPEC has done several analyses of the previous Danish election and the general changes in the voters behavior.
