Voter Turnout: The Shocking Truth 1 of 10

According to stats tracing voter turnouts from 1960-2010, voter turnout in the United States has ranged somewhere between fifty and sixty percent of the nation's population. Surprisingly enough, while the 2008 election was heralded for its high turnout at 56.8%, that does slightly pale in comparison to the 63% in 1960. As much as the world has progressed, voter turnout in the US continues to fall. That's why if you're over the age of eighteen, you need to get out there and vote!
