Abstract

By statistical analysis correlations were found to exist between voting in certain types of local elections and voting in specific kinds of state elections. But such correlations do not explain the behavior of individuals. By simple stochastic process, the author supports Ulmer's theory that, over a given time sequence, the outcome of an election depends upon the outcomes of preceding elections.
