Voter turnout among 45-64 year olds in U.S. presidential elections 1964-2016

In U.S. presidential elections since 1964, the turnout rate among voters aged 45 to 64 has gradually decreased from 76 percent to 62 percent. White voters in this age bracket have had the highest turnout rate in all of these elections, especially white voters of non-Hispanic origin; except for the 2012 election where black voters had the highest turnout rate. As with other age groups, Asian American and Hispanic voters traditionally have much lower turnout rates, often around half of the national average for those in the 45 to 64 age bracket.

Supplementary notes

*Voter turnout figures relate to the share of eligible voters who take part in the election, and does not represent the share of the entire population (for example, under-18's, non-citizens, felons (rules vary)).
Residents in U.S. overseas territories are eligible to vote in general elections, but may not vote in the presidential election.

**Prior to 2004, data also includes Pacific Islanders, therefore caution is advised when comparing figures over time.

***Non-Hispanic whites are defined as European Americans, Middle Eastern Americans, and North African Americans, who do not have Hispanic ancestry. Their data is also included in the "White"category.
