Study Shows Democrats Lack Voting Enthusiasm

Nearly 19 percent of Oklahoma’s voting age population turned out to vote in primaries, according to a study by American University’s Center for the Study of the American Electorate.

Statewide Republican turnout in primaries reached a record high of 9.6 percent in the state, but Democratic turnout was at a record low of 9.4 percent, the study says.

That was part of a national trend, according to the study; GOP turnout nationwide in primaries was the highest since 1970, while Democratic turnout was the lowest ever.
