[en] This article aims at an analysis to what extent class-differences in non-voting—more
precisely: non-voting intention—can be explained referring to the factors of trust in institutions.
What is the link between a lack of trust in state institutions and the intention to abstain from voting? Are there parallel class differences in all of these aspects? Data base is a cumulated ALLBUS data-set (1984, 1994, 2002, 2008). Results indicate class differences in non-voting intention and trust in political institutions—with lowest scores for lowly-skilled working class. Multivariate models show that class-differences in non-voting intention can be explained only to a rather small extent by class-specific trust in institutions. Looking at the time periods, an increasing distance between lowly-skilled working class and the political system can be recognised.
