This study surveyed members of Parliament and candidates for office in British constituencies in the 1966 general election. The questionnaire elicited information about the candidates' ties with their constituencies, their sources of information about their constituencies, their campaign strategies, the operation of the campaigns, and perceived effects. The organization of the local party operation and the candidates' own attitudes and feelings toward election campaigning were also investigated.
