Tuesday's turnout sets record, with more than 133M casting ballots
The drive to register voters, particularly young ones, apparently paid off. Tuesday's turnout was 133,275,000, smashing the record of 122 million voters set in 2004. Tuesday's turnout percentage of eligible voters -- 62.6% -- was the highest since the election of 1964 -- 62.8%.
