Almost 3.1 million, or 65%, of Indiana’s 4.7 million registered voters cast a vote in the Nov. 3 General Election, Secretary of State Connie Lawson announced Tuesday.
The pandemic played a major role in how people voted in the election, with 62% of the vote statewide coming through absentee ballots.
The turnout was not a record, but it topped every General Election since 1992, when 73.8% of those registered to vote cast a ballot. Only 7% of those who voted in 1992 voted with an absentee ballot.
In the 2016 and 2012 General Election, voter turnout was at 58 percent. In 2008, 62 percent of registered Hoosiers voted.
Hamilton and Wells Counties led Indiana counties with the highest turnout in the state in 2020, at 75 percent. They were followed by Greene, Hancock and Whitley at 74 percent.
In Marion County, turnout was 59%, and 55% of the vote came through absentee ballots.
