Report Number P20-557
Thom File
Component ID: #ti400252946

This report examines levels of voting and registration in the November 2006 congressional election, the characteristics of citizens who reported either registering or voting in the election, and the reasons why some registered individuals did not vote.

The data in this report are based on responses to the November 2006 Current Population Survey (CPS) Voting and Registration Supplement, which surveys the civilian noninstitutionalized population in the United States.1 The estimates presented in this report may differ from those based on administrative data or exit polls. For more information, see the section “Accuracy of the Estimates.”

__________
1 People in the military, U.S. citizens living abroad, and people in institutional housing, such as correctional institutions and nursing homes, were not included in the survey. For a discussion of the differences between the official counts of votes cast and the CPS data, see the section “Measuring Voting in the Current Population Survey.”
