Increased Voter Participation

Mikael Moore, Chief of Staff, Rep. Maxine Watters (D-Calif.) said, "In 2008, African-Americans were 13 percent of the electorate, accounted for millions of new voters and propelled then-Sen. Obama to the presidency. Decreased participation could not only jeopardize the re-election of the president, but potentially diminish black political influence for the coming decades.”
