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 2018 midterm elections, Arkansas' voter participation was 39%. This is down from 50% in 2016 (a presidential election year) but up 1 percentage point from the 2014 midterms and up 4 points from 2010 midterms.

There was significant variation in participation rates across the state, with the lowest rates in Sevier and Lincoln counties (26% and 27%, respectively), and the highest rates in Monroe, Searcy, and Newton counties (50%, 51% and 55%, 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.
