Location details: 
New England region
Unit of observation: 
Individual
Sample size: 
1,160
Inclusion/exclusion: 
We identified a random sample of all households of one or two registered voters. Because the election being studied was a closed primary, participation was further restricted to registered Democrats and Republicans residing in these households.
Randomization procedure: 
Callers performed the randomization by drawing one playing card from a well-shuffled deck provided by the investigators; the suit of the card indicated the condition to which the respondent was to be assigned.
Treatment: 
A compound treatment following the Greenwald text, and two treatments breaking the compound down into its constituent elements. Respondents in one treatment condition were asked only to predict whether they would vote; those in a separate condition were asked only to provide the most important reason for voting.
Treatment administration: 
Phone call
Outcome measures: 
Voter turnout
