Agree that D really may or may not be true.
Say, local gangsters who do not participate in elections may have an influence on the community's values.

'may or may not be' means that though the situation given in D may certainly exist it is not necessary that it HAS TO exist. Meaning even if you negate D it will not kill the argument, but you cannot negate A because it is given in the premise itself:
