The report focuses on the analysis of Vince Vasquez, a senior researcher at National University's Think Tank.
Voter turnout is expected to remain historically low, but about 15% higher than the June Primary.
"We're expecting for there to be even additional voters also that are showing up in this election that did not show up in the past election," said Vasquez.
Vasquez characterizes them as new or casual voters who are affluent, younger, and concentrated along the coast.
"They don't spend time thinking about races, they're spending time researching who the candidates are," added Vasquez.
