Concept and goalThe GLES Panel is a survey currently consisting of two samples. Samples A1-A3 "2017 Election Campaign" consists of the respondents of the 2017 Short-term Campaign Panel. Sample A4 "2021 Election Campaign" was surveyed for the first time in the fall of 2020. Sample B "2017 Pre- and Post-Election" consists of the participants of the GLES Cross-Section 2017 who are willing to be interviewed again. They were interviewed for the first time in the GLES Panel in parallel with Sample A in the tenth wave of the GLES Panel. The GLES Panel makes it possible to examine intraindividual changes in political attitudes and behaviors over the course of the election campaign and between federal elections.
