2016 General Election Analysis
My apologies for the delay in providing an election analysis for the November election. As you can guess, collecting election data from across the entire state can be a daunting task.
This report includes information for the entire state. If you are interested in receiving an analysis for a specific congressional, state senate, or state house district or a specific county, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss the project.
Statewide, Republican Primary voters ended up being one-third of the people who showed up to vote in November. The next largest group was voters who had voted in a prior General Election but had not voted in a primary election. This group made up 29.1% of the total votes cast.
Voters with no previous primary or general election history made up 18.3% of the votes cast. This same group made up 15.3% of the voters in the 2012 General Election.
A larger percentage of Democratic Primary voters sat this election out than Republican Primary voters. Of the people with prior Democratic Primary history, 81.5% voted in November (86.0% of previous Republican Primary voters voted).
The report includes additional breakdowns and is available here:
And lastly, I would like to thank Chris Elam for providing me with a new logo (see above). If you need some graphic design work done, I would recommend seeing if he can assist you. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. I hope everyone had a chance to recover from the election. The legislative session begins next week, and for the legislators (and their staff members) who receive this email, I wish you the best of luck. The next five months will fly by and we can begin this whole process over again.
