Voting and Registration in the Election of November 1984 (Advance Report)

Report Number P20-397

The election of 1984 marked the first rise in voter turnout for a Presidential election since the rate began to fall following the 1964 election. According to results from the November 1984 Current Population Survey conducted by the Bureau of the Census, 60 percent of the voting-age population reported that they had voted. This figure represented a rise of 1 percentage point over the rate in the election of 1980 and 1976 and continues an upward trend that began with the Congressional election of 1978 (table A).
