Abstract:This article explores the effects of policing (measured by police- and citizen-initiated stops of pedestrians and cars) on voter turnout for the 2012 general election in St. Louis, Missouri.  This is the first paper of its kind to explore the effects of policing at the precinct level using administrative data on both pedestrian and traffic stops and using administrative data on voting and vote choice.  The analysis shows that more frequent contact with police is associated with decreased voter turnout in the precinct: voter turnout is lower in precincts where greater numbers of citizens are checked by police even after controlling for other potentially confounding characteristics like racial and socioeconomic demographics of the community, crime rates, and the presence of mobilizing organizations like churches.
