Permalink Voter turnout in 2012 US presidential elections 9% lower than 2008

Latest figures show that 117 million Americans, less than 50 percent of the eligible voters, have taken part in the presidential polls, showing a reduction of about nine percent compared to the 2008 election turnout of 131 million. - Preliminary figures indicate only 95 percent of precincts have so far reported their results and the number could change when more votes are counted. “By and large, people didn’t show up,” Curtis Gans, director of American University’s Center for the Study of the American Electorate said Wednesday, adding that voter turnout in most states this year was even lower than 2004. He went on to say that the 2012 presidential race was riddled with disenfranchising campaign tactics, leaving many voters feeling turned off.
