How many people do you think will vote in the US elections this time?

    In 2000 there was about 104 million people turned out to vote.

    i think this year it will be more like 160 million.

    given the statistics of the amount of people voting has been near 60% in the last 5 years or so, i say, mor or less, the same percentage of people will vote

    I agree with fbs. The last election was so close that all those people who said "my vote doesn't really count" will be at the polls this time.

    I think you might see a significant drop-off. It's been a long time since we've had an election with both candidates having such incredibly low popularity.

    I miss being able to vote by something like 6 days. I'll have to wait four more years!
