The 2020 Election Day Voter Experience Study, conducted by U.S. Vote Foundation (US Vote) together with its Overseas Vote initiative from November 2-13, 2020, provides new insights into 15,495 voters’ experiences during the 2020 General Election.
The main objective of this study was to gain insight into voters’ experiences and attitudes concerning the voting process during the 2020 General Election, which was held on November 3, 2020. The survey most closely examined domestic and overseas absentee voters in order to understand logistical issues they face, how well the absentee voting process worked for them, whether they intended to vote in the same manner in the future and what, if any, reforms they would recommend.
The survey captured a snapshot of voters’ electoral behavior and support for the US electoral system, based upon important social demographics, political characteristics, and the type of voting method used in the 2020 election. In addition, to capturing these attitudes, the survey provided respondents with ample opportunity to provide input on their feelings toward the voting process, why they voted (or did not vote) in the manner they did, how to improve the voting process, and, finally, whether they would consider voting in the future and in what manner.
