Voting and Registration in the Election of November 1998

Written by:
Report Number P20-523RV

The right to vote is arguably one of the most important rights of citizenship in a democratic country, yet a substantial number of U.S. citizens choose not to exercise this right. This report examines the characteristics of the people who voted in the November 1998 Congressional election and of those who were registered, as well as why people did not vote. The findings are based on data collected in the Current Population Survey (CPS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau in November 1998.
