Indiana voter turnout up nearly 4 percent from 2006

November 29, 2010

Indiana's voter turnout for this year's general election was up nearly 4 percent from the last mid-term election four years ago.

Figures released Monday by the Indiana secretary of state's office show that about 1.79 million Hoosiers cast ballots for the Nov. 2 election. That is 41 percent of the state's registered voters as Republicans won all statewide races and captured complete control of the Indiana Statehouse.

The turnout topped the 1.72 million voters in 2006, when 40 percent of those registered cast ballots.

The state, however, saw the typical large drop in voter turnout from a presidential election year. About 1 million more Hoosiers voted in 2008.
