The Most Popular Excuses Americans Give For Not Voting
Some interesting details from the Census Report that came up with the data:
- 27 percent of Asians said they didn't vote because they were busy, considerably higher than the national average of 17.5 percent.
- 15 percent of whites said they didn't vote because they didn't like the candidates, twice as high as any other group.
- Young people (ages 18-24), Asians, and bachelor's-degree holders were most likely to report registration problems.
