Most research on election reforms to increase voter turnout has downplayed their effects, showing that they generally benefit educated, older, and more affluent people. This book shows the positive effects that these reforms have on overall voter turnout, and among voters of disadvantaged groups.

With important implications for the 2020 general election and beyond, Accessible Elections underscores how state governments can modernize their electoral practices to increase voter turnout, address electoral inequalities, and influence campaign and party mobilization strategies.
