Turnout not as high as expected
Turnout was not anywhere near the 90 percent state elected officials projected. The presidential race appears to have attracted around 60 percent of Virginia's 5 million registered voters. While the Commonwealth netted an increase of voters this year, the turnout was roughly the same percentage as past presidential election years.
There was a drop off in the number of votes cast in the down ballot races. Roughly 55 percent of voters cast a ballot in the U.S. Senate race. The Congressional races, however, saw an average of 50 percent of people voting.
