The November 2014 General Election in Vermont could turn out to be the election with the lowest turnout in several decades.
The Vermont Secretary of State’s Web site provides data on registered voters and turnout for all elections since 1974. The average turnout in Vermont for the 10 presidential elections from 1976 through 2012 was 70 percent of the registered voters. Vermont has consistently had one of the highest turnout rates in the nation in presidential elections. In part, this is because of the strongly civic-minded culture of the state.
