Why do so many Americans not vote?

In the United States, more than 100 million qualified citizens remain every election, putting the nation nearly dead last in citizen turnout rates compared to other developed countries.

Out of 250 million qualified citizens, somewhat more than half (about 140 million) in fact show up on tally day.

What does that mean for representative federal government?

Among the most apparent ramifications is that United States presidents guideline with less than 30 percent of the population having actually actively selected them. 

Join Steve Clemons in a discussion on the factors behind this American phenomenon, and individuals attempting to “get out the vote”.
