(INDIANAPOLIS) - Secretary of State Connie Lawson Wednesday announced that 51 percent or 2,308,258 of Indiana's 4.5 million registered voters cast a vote in the November 6th General Election.

The complete 2018 General Election Turnout and Absentee Chart with voter statistics for each county can be viewed online here. The report was compiled by the Secretary of State's office using voter data supplied by the office of the County Election Board in Indiana's 92 counties.

"This is the highest midterm turnout in over two decades," said Secretary Lawson. "The last time we saw a midterm with turnout in the 50s was in 1994. Both of these election cycles highlight how candidates and issues drive higher turnout in elections."
