US mid-terms: Why do so many Americans not vote? – BBC News It’S almost election day how many registered voters are there, but not all Americans will be heading to the polls historically, only about 4 in 10 voters, turnout for Mid elections. Here are three reasons why, first, you might just not care either. You feel your vote won’t matter or your not a fan of politics in general and as a result, you stay home. I do not plan on loading, I don’t really get into politics. This is Anna Hayden she’s, a college student in West Virginia estate. That consistently has one of the lowest voter turnout rates and voting or not voting is something that tends to be passed on from generation to generation. This leads us to reason, number two: you don’t care about politics and the politicians intern don’t care about you. We know that when institutions electoral electoral organizations, when they try to mobilize people, turn out as higher and different kinds of people vote. So if you don’t live in a competitive District or you don’t belong to a group they care about. You might just be in a group they’ve give, which means they might not even try to reach out and when you over, and this brings us to our third and final reason. Maybe you do care, and maybe politicians care about you back, but your State’s election laws make it really hard 2 cast in the name of preventing voter fraud. Many states have made it difficult to register limited, pulling X and taking names off the list of registered voters. Without telling people they’ve been removed. There will be some who don’t vote because they I like the choice on offer, but don’t blame low voter turnout purely on those who can’t be bothered. Fewer than half of voters turn out for most mid-term elections but apathy is not the only factor to blame.
