Subsidizing Democracy

This chapter considers how public funding changes the candidates' use of their time, in particular examining the increased time flexibility that candidates participating in public funding are able to make use of. Assuming that candidates intend to earn the highest possible number of votes, it seems safe to expect that if fundraising is removed from the list of necessary campaigning tasks, candidates will redirect the time that would have been spent on fundraising to garnering support from voters instead. Furthermore, depending on the number of hours that subsidies can regain for a candidate, this shift could lead to significant gains in the number of voters the candidate is able to reach directly via any number of tactics.

Keywords:   time flexibility, fundraising, campaigning tasks, voter support, campaign strategies
