Voter Turnout In New York Was Among Lowest In Nation


Despite long lines at the polls in the city, voter turnout across the state on Election Day last week was among the lowest in the country. Only about 46 percent of New York's voting age population cast ballots for president, a drop of 1.5 percent from 2000. The figures are based on unofficial voter returns. The turnout puts New York 46th in the nation out of all 50 states. Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maine and New Hampshire topped the list with turnouts around 70 percent.
