    Why is there such a disparity among minorities on the voter turnout each year?

    According to Projectvote.org, "Low-income and minority citizens—both significant portions of the American population—are historically alienated from the electoral process. As a result, the proportion of the U.S. population that registers to vote and that does vote is highly skewed towards Whites, the educated and the wealthy."

    In my opinion, I think people are uneducated on how the voting process works, how the political framework is structured, and how the electoral votes work compared to popular votes.
