Voting and Registration in the Election of November 1984

Component ID: #ti1481891586

In 1984, voter turnout rose for the first time in a Presidential election since it began falling during the mid-1960’s. Results from the November 1984 supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS) show that 60 percent of persons 18 years old and over reported that they had voted. This is 1 percentage point higher than in both 1980 and 1976 and clearly marks a reversal of the downward trend from 1954 to 1976 (table A).
