Missouri Voter Turnout Tops 3 million, With 70% Turnout
More than 3 million Missourians cast ballots in Tuesday's presidential election. The turnout exceeded the previous high mark of 2.9 million voters in the 2008 presidential election. But the 70% turnout rate fell a little short of the 75% threshold that had been forecast by local election officials. The state's turnout percentage peaked at 78% in the 1992 elections, when there were at least a million fewer registered voters than there are today.
