After historically low turnout during the 2016 elections and 2014 midterms, a new reportfrom the Center for American Progress finds that states could encourage millions more eligible Americans to vote by adopting policies that increase voter turnout and make voting more convenient.
Key Finding: Certain groups are less likely to be registered to vote, including communities of color, low-income Americans, those with disabilities, and young people. In 2016, Asian Americans were 16 percent less likely to be registered to vote than whites.
