More than half of U.S. eligible voters voted in 2018, the highest midterm turnout rate in recent history. Increased turnout was particularly pronounced among Hispanics and Asians.
Latinos made up an estimated 11% of all voters nationwide on Election Day, nearly matching their share of the U.S. eligible voter population.
More Hispanic registered voters say they have given “quite a lot” of thought to the upcoming midterm elections compared with four years ago and are more enthusiastic to vote this year than in previous congressional elections. But they lag behind the general public on some measures of voter engagement.
More than 29 million Latinos are eligible to vote nationwide in the 2018 midterm elections. See how the share of Latino voters varies by state and congressional district using interactive maps and tables.
