Voter turnout is declining.
In 2012, for the first time in 16 years, fewer ballots were cast than in the previous presidential election – about four million less. It was also the first time in a decade that the turnout percentage of eligible voters in a presidential election was under 60 percent.
Voter turnout for the 2014 mid-term election was the worst in more than 70 years.
In 43 states, fewer than half the eligible voters bothered to cast a ballot.
