be made for the claim that "turnout is the paradox that ate rational choice theory."
The motivation for this claim is the belief that the two most commonly derived
predictions from models of instrumental rationality — (1) that few if any voters will
vote and (2) that turnout will be higher the closer the election — are contradicted,
in the first case, and either contradicted or at least not strongly supported, in the ...

expectations of democracy ...

since the idea of designed choice experiments arose out of limitations
encountered in using conjoint analysis techniques to model transport and
telecommunications choices in Australia (Louviere 1981a; Louviere et al. 1982).
Some options that competed had different attributes and different ranges of
attribute levels, and there was a need to estimate true demand by separating
choosers from non-choosers ...
