Summary:

Adding to a get-out-the-vote call script implementation intention questions—asking when a person would vote, where they would be coming from, and what they would be doing beforehand—increased turnout in a competitive presidential primary by 0.9% (intention to treat) or 4.1% (average treatment on treated). There was no effect of simply asking people to predict whether they would vote (see Greenwald et al., 1987).
