This paper looks at what makes a democracy successful and how elections represent the epitome of a democracy. It asks if America is failing as a democracy due to relative low voting participation amongst its population and questions what can be done to improve or change this phenomena.

From the paper:

"One of the most important questions for any democratic country is how to increase voter participation in the process, since a country may be said to be a democracy only to the extent that people participate in the process of selecting leaders. By this measure the United States remains only partially successful as a democracy. Although there was higher voter turnout this year than in many elections (about half of registered voters), there remain both a large number of people who never register to vote at all and a large number of those who are registered who never (or rarely) vote."
