### HideShow timer Statistics

Francis: Failure to become properly registered to vote prevents one-third of the voting-age citizens of Lagonia from voting. If local election boards made the excessively cumbersome registration process easier. more people would register and vote.
Sharon: The high number of citizens not registered to vote has persisted despite many attempts to make registering easier. Surveys show that most of these citizens believe that their votes would not make a difference. Until that belief is changed, simplifying the registration process will not increase the percentage of citizens registering to vote.

The main issue in dispute between Francis and Sharon is:

(A) whether changing the voter registration process would be cumbersome
(B) why so many citizens do not register to vote
(C) what percentage of those registered to vote actually vote
(D) whether local election boards have simplified the registration process
(E) why the public lacks confidence in the effects of voting

Francis: Failure to become properly registered to vote prevents one-third of the voting-age citizens of Lagonia from voting. If local election boards made the excessively cumbersome registration process easier. more people would register and vote.

Sharon: The high number of citizens not registered to vote has persisted despite many attempts to make registering easier. Surveys show that most of these citizens believe that their votes would not make a difference. Until that belief is changed, simplifying the registration process will not increase the percentage of citizens registering to vote.

The main issue in dispute between Francis and Sharon is:

(A) whether changing the voter registration process would be cumbersome- incorrect- Francis says that voter's registration is cumbersome but neither of them about whether changing the voter registration process would be cumbersome
(B) why so many citizens do not register to vote- Correct; As per Francis, the registration process is cumbersome ---> 1/3 of voters DO NOT register
as per Sharon, most of these 1/3 believe that their votes won't make a difference
(C) what percentage of those registered to vote actually vote- incorrect; the percentage of registered voters who actually vote is not stated by either of them
(D) whether local election boards have simplified the registration process - incorrect; Sharon states that attempts have been made to make registering easier, while Francis does not make any such statements
(E) why the public lacks confidence in the effects of voting - incorrect; Francis does not discuss this whereas Sharon does not explain they WHY aspect
