WASHINGTON — In an election characterized by name-calling, classified emails and “small hands,” voter turnout has reached its second-highest level in the past 35 years.
Voter turnout has been double what it was in 2012, and is less than 2 percent behind the level during the 2008 presidential election, according to the Pew Research Center, a bipartisan organization.
The turnout is especially noteworthy for Republicans. Data from the United States Election Project, which compiles and analyzes election results and statistics, show Republican voting in primaries and caucuses is up across the board.
States such as Idaho, Virginia and Missouri have seen increases of more than 200 percent in Republican turnout compared to 2012. Traditionally, blue states have also seen spikes relative to 2012. Massachusetts and Maine, for example, had increases of 72 percent and 220 percent, respectively.
