Voting behaviour of the Zurich cantonal parliament

________________________________________________________________________

Voting behaviour of the cantonal Parliament of the canton of Zurich, legislative turn 2011-2019. 

The aim of this project is to analyze systematically the voting behaviour of the parliamentary groups during the 2011-2015 legislative period. Since 2007, the Zurich cantonal parliament uses an electronic voting system. This makes it possible for the first time to examine the voting behaviour of individual parliamentarians in a cantonal parliament.
