Offline Version: PDF

Term explicit logrolling Definition: A type of voter logrolling in which each of two voters agree to cast separate votes for two separate programs or policies. With explicit logrolling, each voter must go "on record" as voting for each program. While explicit logrolling often contributes to government inefficiency, at the very least the voters can be held accountable for their voters. An alternative type of logrolling is implicit logrolling.
