Voting Behavior - Lebanon
In Lebanon, the block vote system with sectarian quotas is used in parliamentary elections and there is no standard ballot. Many parties and pre-election coalitions publish their own unofficial ballots (called lists), which voters are free to modify and select candidates from more than one party or coalition. In the survey, voters were asked if they voted for party/coalition lists as they are or if they crossed out/substituted names from the list.
- Survey results indicate that men were more likely than women to form their own lists which shows that they put more thought than women into the voting selection process (Figure 12).
- Shia women were more likely to stick to entire lists when they casted a vote when compared to women from other sects: 87% of Shia women voted for an entire list compared with 84% of Sunni women, 81% of Christian women and 74% of Druze women.
