Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson says 51 percent or 2,308,258 of Indiana’s 4.5 million registered voters cast a vote in the November 6 General Election.
“This is the highest midterm turnout in over two decades,” said Secretary Lawson. “The last time we saw a midterm with turnout in the 50s was in 1994.”
LaGrange and Steuben County’s turnout was 54% while Elkhart County saw 45 % turnout, Noble County 48% and DeKalb County 50%. Henry County had the highest turnout in the state at 64 percent.
Early voting popularity continues to soar. In 2014, only 16 percent of voters cast a ballot early. This year, that number was doubled to 32 percent.
