“Most registered voters aren’t actually voting”

15th of May 2015

San Antonio newspaper article that registration doesn’t always or rarely translate into votes.

Nearly 55,900 people cast ballots during early voting in Bexar County in this election — a healthy turnout compared to past mayoral races.  But if past history is a guide, roughly nine out of 10 registered voters still won’t be participating at all. The average turnout rate for city voters was slightly more than 10 percent in past mayoral races from 2003 to 2013 during early voting and on Election Day. The most robust turnout topped 16 percent — but that was a decade ago.
