How many registered voters in Hawaii actually cast their ballot in the general election?

The estimated turnout after the third printout was 382,328, or 50.98%.

In comparison, in 2014, turnout was 52.30%, and in 2012, a presidential year that pitted President Barack Obama against challenger Mitt Romney, it was 61.90%.

Sixty-six percent turned out in 2008, when Obama made his first presidential bid against John McCain.

Tuesday’s turnout was still much higher than our August primary election at 34.77%.
