West Virginia among the lowest voter turnouts in the nation
Nationally, voter turnout for this week's election was down compared to the 2008 presidential election, with about 60% of the nation's eligible voters casting ballots this year compared to 62% four years ago. Hawaii typically has the lowest voter turnout among states, but this year it's looking like West Virginia may have that title. 46.9% of voters turned out Tuesday in Hawaii, and West Virginia's turnout was slightly lower at 46.1%. Superstorm Sandy hit West Virginia a week ago, and polling locations were moved in some counties.
