The authors systematically analyze runoff elections by assembling a data set that includes primary and general election returns for those states that regularly use runoffs for selecting state legislative, executive, and congressional officials. They also draw upon data for many municipal offices nationwide and examine court cases and legislative efforts aimed at abolishing or altering runoffs.
