Unfortunately, 11 12 Put another way, Latinos made up almost 30 percent of the adult population of these cities but only 14 percent of the voters in the exit polls.
By turning out to vote in great numbers, minorities and other disadvantaged groups could become a large enough threat that they motivate leaders to be more responsive to minority interests – regardless of the direction of the minority vote. Where Turnout Should Matter 31 than in cities with lower turnout. I focus on spending patterns because changes in how cities raise and spend their money is arguably the most important way local governments can affect policy. Unless a local government actually commits substantial economic resources to a policy, that policy is likely to have a marginal effect on the well-being of different respondents.
Only if nonvoters favor different choices can their entry into an electoral contest affect the outcome. Whether these kinds of divisions are greater at the local level than other levels is unclear. Third, and finally, the groups who vote less regularly must be large enough to have a say if they did vote. I suggested that this is also a condition that is more likely at the local level given the uneven geographic distribution of the population. In the cities where minorities actually live, they should make up a substantial portion of the electorate and should be large enough to at least theoretically help determine the outcome of the election.
