- Which state displaced Texas for lowest voter turnout?
- Which states had the highest turnout? (It wasn’t Minnesota for a change.)
- Compared to the presidential electorate, how much older was the midterm electorate?
- Compared to 2010, which demographics increased their share of the vote? (You’ll be surprised!)
- What issue was more decisive for voters, the economy or immigration?
- What do voters think of Election Day Registration and early voting?
Get the answers to these and other questions by joining us next week for a discussion of voter turnout in the 2014 midterm election:
Who Turned Out in the 2014 Midterm Election: A Post-Election Debrief
Wednesday November 12th at 2:00pm ET
Using Edison Research’s benchmark National Election Pool exit poll, we will examine voter turnout among young voters, newer Latino and Asian-American voting populations, and other demographics to examine how these turnout numbers, partisan choices, and issue preferences fit into recent trends and may have impacted election results.
