Abstract: There are 1,212 face-to-face interviews in the pre-election study, 1,066 of which later provided a face-to-face interview in the post-election study. In addition to content on electoral participation, voting behavior, and public opinion, the 2004 NES contains questions in other areas such as media exposure, cognitive style, and values and predispositions. Special-interest and topical content provided significant coverage of foreign policy, including the war on terrorism and the war in Iraq. In addition, the study carried expanded instrumentation on unemployment and inflation, gender politics, and gay and lesbian politics. An exceptional feature was the insertion of the comprehensive module on representation and accountability, Module 2, from the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES), at the end of the Post-election interview.
