I just did some research and on average, only 55% of registered voters vote in presidential elections.

interesting stat, I did not realize the number was that low..

I don't know if that is good or bad. I've heard that historically, minorities such as blacks and Hispanics don't vote. I don't know if that means they are registered but don't bother or if they just don't register. If getting that 55% up means having more minorities vote and we know they vote democrat that 55% might be a good thing.
