What is left out of the voting-eligible population?
The voting-eligible population is not a true estimate for
- I do not correct for the number of persons found
mentally incapacitated by a court of law since there is no reliable
estimate. My guess from examination of National Health Statistics
reports is that this population is somewhere around 250,000.
- I do not correct for the number of unregisted and
registered voters who - depending on states law - have recently moved. (Note, if this situation pertains to you, please
check with your local election officials as many states have provisions
that permit recent movers to vote.)
- I do not correct for the number of permanently disfranchised felons, and I may not accurately estimate all classes of disfranchised individuals guilty of crimes .
- I do not correct for the census net undercount of the
population, since no reliable state-level estimates are available at this
