This year marks the presidential election that will take place on November 3, 2020. With changes slowly unfolding, it’s clear to see that this year’s 2020 electorate will be unique in a few ways. Nonwhite voters i.e Black, Asian, Spanish will make up a third of eligible voters in the U.S. as well as an increasing number of groups, especially Hispanics.
In 2020, nearly a quarter of the electorate (23%) will be ages 65 and older, the highest share since at least 1970. Baby Boomers and older generations, who will be ages 56 and older, are expected to account for fewer than four-in-ten eligible voters in 2020. The next presidential election will also mark the first time that Millennials (who will be ages 24 to 39 in 2020) will account for a slightly smaller share of the electorate than they represented in the last presidential election.
The 2020 election will mark the first time that Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate, totaling for just over 13% of eligible voters. The population of Asians eligible to vote will reach an estimated 11 million in 2020, which is more than double the 5 million who were eligible to vote in 2000, accounting for 5% of this year’s electorate.
VEP Total Ballots Counted turnout rate is the Total Ballots Counted divided by the voting-eligible population or VEP. In instances where the two political parties did not simultaneously hold their nomination contests, the first instance reflects turnout of the first party to hold their contest and the second instance reflects the total turnout of the two parties' contests combined, and the reported turnout rate is for this sum of the two contests.
