Interesting Voting Statistics

Massachusetts did better than most states in getting people to go to the polls in 2016: 68.3 percent of people eligible to vote in Massachusetts did. (via The United States Elections Project)

The Bay State currently gets to cast 11 electoral votes of the 270 a candidate needs to win the Presidency. That number can change based on the results of the Census, though, because some of those 11 votes come from how many Representatives we have in Congress…which is decided by the count of people in the state that is conducted every 10 years. (via Research Maniacs}

In the 2016 general election, 138 million Americans voted. That’s only 58.1 percent of those eligible to vote! (via The United States Elections Project)
