Foreclosures Expected to Deter Thousands of Voters in Upcoming Election

October 30, 2012 Posted by kingcade

Thousands of foreclosure victims are expected to be absent from the polls next week, according to a study published by the University of California. The study showed that voter turnout was lower during the election in 2008 in areas struggling with higher foreclosure rates.

In every state, voter registration is tied to residency, but states vary in how a voter must establish their residency and re-register to vote. With some 1.3 million homes in some stage of foreclosure as of August 2012 and with approximately 3.8 million foreclosures already complete since September 2008, according to the market research firm CoreLogic, foreclosures could keep hundreds of thousands of voters away from the polls.

Swing states such as Ohio and Florida are also the hardest hit foreclosure states. Many voters are reportedly angry by the lack of discussion about the housing market problems by the candidates during their campaigns. This might also serve as a reason for low voter turnout by those affected by foreclosure.
