    Have not seen the numbers for the Nation, but Ohio had about a 71% turn out among registered voters. I would say that this should be on the high side of average. Some States like New York, California, etc would see lower turn outs since if you are Conservative your vote really doesn't count especially where you live. Just like those in Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska would have a lower turn out among liberals.

    I voted even thought my vote was "wasted" on Gary Johnson.
