This article presents an overview of existing research into the Portuguese electoral behavior. There exists a lot of studies on the above subject providing useful information. Since such studies are being conducted since 1974, research on electoral behavior in Portugal remains unsystematic and dispersed, weakening its cross-time and cross-country applicability. The research requires greater systematization providing insight into areas that existing research is unable to provide, elucidating others that remains contradictory in the existing literature.
