Why did so many more people vote in this election than the ones of past?

155 million in this election. Only 129 million vote in the last one. It can’t be because people didn’t like Trump, because half of that extra 26 million went to him - he got an extra 13 million votes than he did last time and still lost.

Update:

Clearly some people can’t read - HALF OF THOSE EXTRA 26 MILLION VOTED FOR TRUMP!!!

So what, they turned up to vote for him because they hated him??

    Are you certain that all of those extra votes were cast by actual "people"??

    Stakes high on both sides - PLUS easier to do and WAY less voter suppression (both due to mail-in ballots) and those are two GOOD reasons why mail-in ballots should stay even after covid - and like my state did - you are registered, you got one automatically. (That's a bit of a nudge to fill it out or, if open go to the polling station). Other methods should also be added - like what one state did "drive-through" voting - if you figure out a secure way, even voting over the Internet - ANYTHING to increase participation, and decrease suppression!

    That’s why he was the most divisive and polarizing politician of the last 100 years. No small feat.

    And Biden received about 17 million more than Hillary did in 2016.

    Why more votes?

    More states and more people used mail in voting, which should be available every where all the time.

    Lockdown is boring... So they thought voting for a d0uch3 and a turd sandwich would be better than staying home. 

    If clubs and recreation were still open the slaves would not have wasted time to vote.

    Because they wanted to get rid of him so badly they had to vote Biden.

    Trust me, it CAN be because that many people didn't like trump.

    Biden is no prize, but trump is a sociopath.
