The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.
Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Voter Turnout in Presidential Elections
Voter turnout is key to a healthy political system. In the United States, voter turnout as a percent of eligible voters varies significantly depending on the type of race and whether the election cycle includes a presidential election.
For example, according to the US Census Bureau, over 57% of eligible voters participated in the 2008 Presidential elections and 53% participated in the US Representatives election. The following US Representative election cycle realized only a 37% voter turnout.
