2016 Voter Turnout in Presidential Primaries by State--Republican and Democrat--Interesting!


Five states held primaries Tuesday: Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois and Missouri. Ohio had the highest turnout, with 35.2 percent of the voting-age population casting ballots, according to the state. The lowest turnout of the day was Florida, at 25.6 percent, 4.1 percentage points higher than Texas. Florida, like Louisiana, has a closed primary system.

When accounting for the voting-eligible population, an estimate that excludes undocumented immigrants and felons on probation or parole, Texas still ranks second to last. On March 1, 24.7 percent of Texas' estimated voting-eligible population cast a ballot.

Though Texas saw record turnout numbers for the 2016 presidential primaries, it still ranked second to last in voting-age participation, above only Louisiana, among states which have held primaries so far. Overall, 21.5 percent of Texans ages 18 and over cast ballots.
