This chapter focuses on establishing a theoretical foundation to build a dynamic politico-economic model, which features two dimensions of heterogeneity: age and income. The citizen candidate model is the motivation to build the dynamic politico-economic model for analyzing elements of strategic voting among different groups. The citizen candidate model is simplified to demonstrate the role of the dynamic politico-economic model in analyzing elements of strategic voting among different groups. The analysis reveals that strategic voting relaxes the assumption of sincere voting, where people vote for a candidate who has a chance of winning rather than a candidate of their choice. Strategic voting also involves a voter voting for a candidate who can meet his or her expectations after winning.

Keywords:   heterogeneity, strategic voting, politico-economic model
