What does this measure?

The percentage of the voting-age population (18 and over) who voted in an election.

Why is this important?

Voting is a basic right of all citizens and indicates the citizenry's interest, commitment, and belief in the value of participating in the political process.

How is Arkansas doing?

In the 2020 elections (a presidential election year), Arkansas' voter participation was 53%. This is 11 percentage points higher than the rate in 2019 (turnout for presidential election years is often higher), and 3 points higher than 2016 (also a presidential election year). It represents the highest level of presidential election year participation in the past two decades.

There was significant variation in participation rates across the state, with the lowest rates in Sevier and Lincoln counties (27% and 28%, respectively), and the highest rates in Monroe, Searcy, and Newton counties (51%, 51% and 56%, respectively).

Notes about the data

Rates were calculated using Census estimates of the population 18 and over. National data is only available for presidential elections every four years. Voter turnout was calculated using votes cast in the top race on the ballot.
