Voting at railway stations in the Netherlands

This week voters in the Netherlands went to the polls. Radio Netherlands reported that the decision to place some voting booths in stations was a success.
In 2008 researchers from Stanford University argued that location effects voting bhaviour see the abstract and references for Contextual priming: Where people vote affects how they vote on the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences website.

The UK Political Studies Association database also has papers from its conferences (1994-2010) which cover voting behaviour.
And American Political Studies Association conference papers 2002 onwards can also be viewed from their website

The ACE Electoral Knowledge Encyclopedia contains articles on arange of topics covering all aspects of elections and electoral systems.

finally it might be useful to take a look at the International Idea voter turnout database - does a differnet electoral system or method of voting increase political participation?
