Almost 92 million eligible Americans did not vote in the 2016 presidential elections. In the 2014 midterm elections, an estimated 143 million eligible Americans failed to vote, marking the lowest voter participation in 72 years. For the nation’s democracy to function properly and for government to provide fair representation, all eligible Americans must have the opportunity to vote—and be encouraged to do so.
One study found that early voting can increase participation by about 2 to 4 percent. According to the authors’ calculations, if all states had early voting in place during the 2016 elections, there could have been at least 789,500 more voters.
No matter if you plan to vote early, make sure you exercise your right to vote.
