Same Percentage Voted in 2004 as 2008

The same percentage of the population voted in 2008 as in the 2004 election, reports the American University’s Center for the Study of the American Electorate. Reports of unusally high voter turnout have been exaggerated, according to the data.

Republican turnout was slightly lower than 4 years ago, while Democratic turnout was only slightly higher.

Alabama was among 6 states reported to have seen increased voter turnout.
