Foot voting is the ability of people to "vote with their feet"[1] by leaving situations they do not like or going to situations they believe to be more beneficial.[citation needed] It has been described as "a tool for enhancing political freedom: the ability of the people to choose the political regime under which they wish to live".[2]


The concept has been associated with Charles Tiebout[3] and Ronald Reagan.[4][not in citation given]
