According to the Social Benefits of Homeownership and Stable Housing paper, homeowners participate in elections much more frequently than renters. One study found that 77 percent of homeowners said they had at some point voted in local elections compared with 52 percent of renters.
REALTORS® also understand the importance of voting. Ninety-five percent are registered to vote, 92 percent voted in the last national election, and 85 percent voted in their last local election.
