voting tourism
 n.— «The major problem concerns the thousands of Turks with Bulgarian citizenship who live or work in Turkey and have a double citizenship. Some refer to the phenomenon as “voting tourism” because of the buses from Turkey, of which the media often report during elections, and which carry “passengers” to the polling stations in Bulgaria.» —“Towards EU ballot boxes!” Focus Information Agency (Sofia, Bulgaria) Feb. 21, 2007.
