Operation Black Vote ble started i 1996 som et samarbeid mellom de to organisasjonene Charter88 og 1990 Trust.

De demografiske endringene i Storbritannia kan bli utslagsgivende for det neste parlamentsvalget. En undersøkelse utført av Operation Black Vote viser at antall representanter hvor minoritetsstemmene kan avgjøre utfallet har økt med 70% siden 2010 valget. Toryene er lite populære blant innvandrere, kun 16% stemmer konservativt. Dette vil antakelig allerede koste dem mellom 20-40 plasser i Parlamentsvalget i 2015 ifølge professor Anthony Heath, fra Oxford University, som har studert etno-demografiske endringer i valgsammenheng.

Vi ser det samme i USA hvor det stadig blir vanskeligere for republikanerne å vinne valg. Les mer i The New Yorker:

«In March, the Republican National Committee released a remarkable document. A report by what is known as the Growth and Opportunity Project X-rayed the 2012 election results and came to one major conclusion: the G.O.P. needed to attract more nonwhite voters or it would never win at the national level again. Mitt Romney won three-fifths of the white vote in 2012, a historically high level, but he still lost the election by almost five million votes, or four percentage points.

Unless the RNC gets serious about tackling this problem, we will lose future elections; the data demonstrates this. In both 2008 and 2012, President Obama won a combined 80 percent of the votes of all minority voters, including not only African Americans but also Hispanics, Asians, and others. The minority groups that President Obama carried with 80 percent of the vote in 2012 are on track to become a majority of the nation’s population by 2050.»
