Know your voting facts for National Voter Registration Day

We have more facts on voting at ThinkProgress.

  • Approximately 68 percent of voting age Americans are registered to vote.
  • That compares to 100 percent of Argentinians, 97 percent of Brits, 93 percent of Canadians and 77 percent of South Africans.
  • Republican officials like Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler both attempted voter purges this year seeking to kick even more people off the voter rolls.
  • “A person is more likely to be struck by lightning than to commit in-person voter fraud.” 
  • One study of Wisconsin voters determined that just .00023 percent of votes are the product of in-person fraud.
