I calculated the exact number now, we had 197.39% turnout. Go to love that same day registration Smiley

I don't think you can really calculate turnout with same-day registration...

That's why there should be a cutoff date in advance of election day. It currently takes an Election Commission about 2 weeks to assess names and addresses on provisional votes after Election Day. It takes about the same time to check new names in advance of the election. Add a week to print official lists for all the precincts in large counties, and a 21-30 day registration cutoff makes sense.

2016 PVI map of the Electoral College, with each state's size proportional to its vote in the EC. Grey states are even (PVI 0 or 1), pale states are lean-likely (PVI 2 through 5), dark states are solid (PVI 6 or more).

yeah but that's the official number. almost twice as many people voted as who were registered at the precinct the morning of election day.

No, but does anyone have a listing of state turnout in 2004 and 2000...
