Presidential election. Among those who didn't vote, 21% were too
busy, 7.7% didn't like the candidates, and 4% forgot to vote.
Seventy
percent of all eligible voters (citizens 18 and over) were registered to vote.
Sixty percent of all eligible voters in the United States actually voted in
2000. Voting participation rates varied dramatically by state. The highest
voting rates were found in the District of Columbia, North Dakota,
Wisconsin, Maine and Minnesota, each at around 70%. The lowest state
participation was found in Hawaii, at 44%.
