Voter Turnout Experts

In the United States of America, there has been a decrease of voting participation. Indeed, in between the 2008 and 2016 election, there has been a decrease of 8.3% of voter turnout according to CNN Politics. The poor voting outcome of this important North American country raised my concerns.

New Power, New Voters

English

Gregory Wallace explained through CNN Politics an issue that raised my concern. His powerful title of his article apprehends the matter greatly: “Voter Turnout at 20-year low in 2016”.  Indeed, the voting participation in 2016 in the United States of America was at its lowest point in the past 20 years. Only 55% of the voting age population selected the candidate they wanted to see rule their country. 55% of the American population represents 126 million votes. Although it seems like a lot, that is the result of the decrease of 18,7 million participants in the past two years.
