Most British electoral studies pay little regard to the role of place as an influence on voting behaviour, on either the long-term moulding of attitudes or the short-term attempts to win votes. This paper investigates one aspect of the latter, exploring the relationship between voting and the amount spent on constituency-level campaigns in England in 1983. The results suggest that the amount spent, especially by challengers, does have a significant impact on the election result.
