Voting in Local, State and Federal Elections
According to the United States Census Bureau’s voting and registration data, the estimated voting-age population (VAP) of the United States in 2020 was approximately 255 million. Of this population, an estimated 66.4% or 213 million people were registered to vote, and about 66.7% or 158 million people voted in the 2020 presidential election. Voting is a great way for citizens to participate in the democratic process, so why is that so many people don’t vote? How can we encourage more people to vote?

Voting via phone or personal computer offers several potential benefits, particularly in terms of convenience and accessibility. One of the main advantages of remote voting is that it allows people to cast their ballots from the comfort of their own homes, without having to travel to a polling station or wait in long lines. This can be particularly beneficial for our military personnel, for people with mobility issues, or those who live far away from their nearest polling place.
Remote voting can also increase overall voter turnout by making it easier and more convenient for people to participate in the democratic process. By removing some of the barriers to voting, such as long lines and inconvenient polling locations, remote voting can help ensure that more people have a voice in the political process. This is particularly important for groups that historically face barriers to voting, such as people with disabilities or those who have to work long hours.
There is evidence to suggest that remote voting could also provide cost savings and efficiencies compared to traditional in-person voting. For example, a study by the National Conference of State Legislatures found that some states have been able to reduce the cost of administering elections by adopting remote voting methods. This is because remote voting can reduce the need for polling places, election workers, and other resources that are typically required to run an in-person election.
Another potential advantage of remote voting is that it can allow for faster and more accurate vote counting. With remote voting, ballots can be processed and counted automatically, using computer algorithms and other technologies. This can reduce the potential for human error and ensure that election results are reported more quickly and accurately.
Overall, while there are many potential benefits to remote voting in terms of convenience, accessibility, accuracy, and cost savings, it is important to carefully evaluate the risks and challenges associated with these systems before implementing them on a widespread basis. Any remote voting system should be carefully designed and tested to ensure that it is secure, reliable, and accessible to all eligible voters, regardless of their technological proficiency or other barriers to participation.
