People who feel efficacious politically are much more likely to become actively involved in politics to follow politics, to discuss politics, to be more active partisans and to be more engaged in political activities. The higher the political efficacy of the citizenry, the higher is its general participation in political matters. This is one of the reasons why it is crucial to examine political efficacy of voters while analysing their participation in the political process. The study found that political attitudes and perceptions towards democratic process do contribute to a combination of factors that motivate the electors to go to the polls. As a whole the study indicates that there is a positive link between the sense of political efficacy and level of political participation of the respondents.



Sense of Political Efficacy, Democracies, Voting, Confidence, Government.
