Nez Perce: Voter participation rate

Voter participation rate calculates how many registered voters cast ballots, while voters by population divides the total voting-age population by ballots cast.
In Nez Perce in 2018:
  • the voter participation rate was 64 percent,
  • the voters by population was 36 percent,
  • the number of registered voters at cutoff was 21,533,
  • the number of people who registered on election day was 1,604, 
  • the number of ballots cast was 14,681, and
  • the total number of registered voters was 23,137.

Ask questions:

· Voter participation rate can be associated with the ethnicity and mobility of the population. What’s the ethnic make-up of your county (e.g., how many are Hispanic and how many are non-Hispanic)? Also, what is the migration rate?

· What is the percentage of population who speak English less than very well?

· Is the Hispanic population growing at a different rate than the population as a whole?

Dig deeper:

· Look at the county rankings for your state and/or view maps to see how your county compares to others.

· Use the U.S. Census Bureau’s American FactFinder to learn more about the local Hispanic population. Many indicators at this site report data for both Hispanics and non-Hispanics. See
