Voter turnout among Hispanic voters in U.S. presidential elections 1972-2016

Between 1972 and 2016, turnout among Hispanic voters in U.S. presidential elections fluctuated between 38 and 26 percent. Since 1972, turnout among Hispanic voters in the 25 to 44 age bracket has dropped from almost forty percent, below average and under thirty percent since the 1980s. In contrast, the oldest Hispanic voters have gone from being the least likely to vote in 1972, to consistently having the highest turnout since the 1996 election (although their turnout has never matched that of white voters above the age of 25). Hispanic voters in the 45 to 64 bracket have had the most consistent turnout since 1972, ranging from 36 to 44 percent. Hispanic voters under the age of 25 have usually had the lowest turnout in presidential elections, although participation has increased in recent years, and was even higher than turnout among 25 to 44 year olds in 2008.
