Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson has released the voter turnout results from the 2020 general election. The results show 65% of Indiana’s 4.7 million registered voters cast a vote in the election, which is the largest turnout since 1992.
The 2020 General Election Turnout and Absentee Chart says 3,068,542 voters participated in the election. This year’s figure compares to 62% in the 2008 general election and 58% in 2016 and 2012.
Lawson’s office says Hamilton and Wells counties had the highest turnout in the state, both at 75%. Green, Hancock and Whitley counties followed at 74%.
“We continue to see that candidates and issues drive turnout,” Lawson said in a news release. “Presidential elections tend to have higher turnout rates. That held true this year with sixty-five percent of Hoosiers turning out to vote, the highest percentage we’ve seen since 1992.”
