Who are America’s Missing Voters?

Missing voters are voting age citizens who did not vote in the most recent November elections. Missing voters reflect the diversity of the United States as a whole. They are of all ages and races, of all educational backgrounds, and they live in every state across our nation.

Why do Missing Voters Matter?

 

Unfortunately, low rates of voter participation have persisted in the United States for a long time. We believe that civic disengagement represents a fundamental threat to the separation of powers in our government, and to American democracy itself.

What is the Missing Voters Project?

The MVP reports rigorous, impartial data about America’s missing voters to inform the widespread grassroots efforts to increase voter participation in the  2020 presidential election.

What's in the Missing Voters Project Reports?

The MVP reports contain charts and maps with detailed information about voting participation, voter registration, and missing voters. Each page of every MVP Report has been designed with a dual purpose: as an integrated part of the whole report, and as a stand-alone “Fact Sheet.” Organizations working to increase voter registration can pull out individual pages to reproduce and share.
