Kurzfassung auf Englisch: Although they make up a considerable share of the electorate, the literature has
overlooked the voting behaviour of non-ideological voters. Using Spanish electoral data from
the 1979-2004 electoral period, we seek to identify which alternative cues these voters may
use when they cast their ballot – providing ideology is not available. We do not find that
evaluations of the incumbent’s performance have a higher influence on non-ideological
voters as the retrospective voting literature suggests. Nor we find that other shortcuts such as
candidate evaluations or party identification are more used by this group when they vote.
Instead, our results indicate that non-ideological voters have exchanged the traditional
ideological shortcut for the simple pro-incumbent voting as a decision rule.
