A is correct.
B), C), and E) are out because they miss "may", and D) misses "that" before "there is...".

A

Although OA is A, I don't get why "much" is used for "voters". Aren't "voters" countable? If yes, shouldn't we use "many"?

May I also add that choice E takes out the possibility of 'may agree' by stuffing agreement down the throat of the voters.
