Easttown Overall Voter Turnout

Voter Turnout is the percentage of registered eligible voters who cast a ballot in an election. Major factors affecting Voter Turnout include: whether the election is a Spring primary (light blue rows) or Fall general election (white rows); the personalities and campaigns of the candidates;  and whether the candidates are running at the local, state or federal level. 

In Easttown,  the presidential general elections have the highest Voter Turnout levels followed by the governor general elections. Typically, there is quite a drop-off for the municipal elections and primaries.

Easttown Democratic Voter Turnout Increasing!

Primary election data reveals the level of voter turnout by party (the data isn’t available for the general elections). Unfortunately, as the table below shows, many Democrats don’t make it to the polling locations for primaries. Though there is an increase in voter turnout for the general elections, many Democrats choose to stay home for the Fall elections too. Every vote counts in Easttown so please make it to the polls and help us elect Democrats at the local, county, state and federal level.
