This project examines whether low-income, predominantly minority, voters were disenfranchised during the 2020 primary election at a higher rate than in past primary elections. The extensive research gathered will provide clarity toward the pro’s and con’s of mail-in-voting as well as the effects a global pandemic has on voter turnout during a Presidential Election. The data collected also indicates that voter suppression is still prevalent throughout America. The goal is to determine methods that will improve the democratic process to increase voter turnout and build a more stable voting system.
