I can’t find an estimate of turnout for yesterday’s special election, but if we compare raw votes, the 2004 regular election had a total of 316,760 votes cast and yesterday there were a total of 114,186 votes. Of course, comparing a special election to a presidential election year is an unfair comparison. We can look at 2002 and we see that there were 188,016 votes cast.

Raw votes aren’t as good a measure as percentage of voters, but it gives one a good idea and confirms my guess in the previous post that turnout was low in this election, as one would expect.
