ABSTRACT: Cross-section time-series analysis of 9 Canadian jurisdictions over 19 years is used to identify the effect of mandatory votes/card check on certification success. The results indicate that mandatory votes reduce certification success rates by approximately 9 percentage points below what they would have been under card check. This result is robust across specifications and significant at above the 99% confidence level.
