Voter Turnout Lower

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Voter turnout for this year’s general election dipped to nearly its lowest point in two decades. Election officials are still tabulating ballots, but so far, the 126 million votes counted means only about 55 percent of voting age citizens cast ballots this year.  That measure is the lowest in a presidential election since 1996 when about 53 percent of voters turned out to the polls.  Full measures of turnout won’t be clear for several more weeks when the officials results will be certified.
