Abstract
Since their emergence in the late 1980s, Voting Advice Applications (VAAs) have become a more prominent feature of electoral campaigns, especially in Europe where they are used by millions of citizens. While the number of VAA designers is increasing, many of the VAAs that are implemented today are nearly identical in terms of layout and methods to VAAs fielded more than a decade ago. Moreover, although the literature on VAAs has increased exponentially, VAA data is still handled and shared in a haphazard manner. The panel includes papers that address innovations in the design of VAAs and/or issues with regards to collecting and sharing VAA data.
