You have a point, Joel. "Disenfranchised" is used by people that are
involved with elections. It means pretty much exactly what you said (i.e.,
"...voters were discouraged from voting" or "...votes were not correctly
counted")

In other words, it's short hand for what you said but some readers may not
know exactly what is meant.

> What does this mean? The term "disenfranchised" is jargon (in my opinion,
largely meaningless). Why not say something like "...voters were
discouraged from voting" or "...votes were not correctly counted" or
whatever the real concern is.
