2016’s “Missing Voters” Can Be Found with Automatic Voter Registration

Liz Kennedy

This time next year, the election of 2016 will be over and America will have chosen its next president.

But how many Americans will have actually participated in making this decision?

In the 2012 presidential election, 1.3 million votes decided the winner in the ten states with the closest margins of victory. But nearly 20 million eligible citizens in those states—Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin—are missing from the voter rolls.
