Although participation increased in the 2020 General Election in Indiana and across the country, voter turnout is (or should be) a major concern. It’s especially problematic in Indiana where it has been lagging for years. It hit rock bottom in 2014 when, by many measures, Indiana had the lowest voter turnout of all the states.
Why should that be? I compared Indiana’s 2020 performance with the 15 other states that had the highest voter turnout to try to understand why Indiana’s performance has been fair to poor.
