Abstract

Within the United States, the voter turn out will vary throughout various elections. Political parties play a large role in how many Americans vote, but within the African American community, not only does political part count as a factor, but so does representation and stance. So, for our research, we will research the major causes of African American voter turnout. When African Americans were first able to vote, there were always key factors preventing them from doing so, from threats to acts of violence, this trend in African American voters continued even into current times minus the reoccurring violence. One specific trend that we observed the most when researching these components would be representation. Within many sets of data, we saw when African Americans were represented in one way or another within the polls, the voter turnout would increase significantly. Just a sheer amount of representation can cause voter participation and campaigning to soar throughout many African American communities within the United States. With statistics relating the facts mentioned before, this study will further research the different voter trends within the African American community. So as of now, my partner and I believe that representation among African American voters play a role in African American voter turn out.
