2000 Registration and Turnout

Today, I updated (finally!) the 2000 Voter Registration and Turnout data and maps. Tennessee data is still not correct, though as the numbers are from December 1 and not prior to the November 7 election.
Registration data tends to be very suspect in my eyes. Differences between active and inactive (or suspense – depending on state), when and how voter rolls are purged, etc. tend to lead to significant inaccuracies. For example, Wyoming had 220,012 voters registered for 2000 and 218,351 votes cast (including the 4,625 (2.1%) votes cast as write-ins for Ralph Nader) – a whopping 99.3% voter turnout!
