What presidential election had the lowest voter turnout?

Across the democratic world, excluding countries with compulsory voting, voter turnout is at its highest at federal or national general elections. This is generally because these elections are heavily publicised in the press, dominate the public affairs agenda for the duration of their campaigns and are regarded as being of high importance to the electorate - as well as being directly relevant to their daily and/or political lives. In contrast, in most jurisdictions, turnout is comparatively low in local, regional, municipal or state elections, largely because they are not as well publicised and considered less important by most electors. In the United Kingdom for example, it is not uncommon for turnout at annual local elections to be half - or even less than half - the turnout of the average general election. It is worth noting that in nations with an elected executive (i.e., President), turnout in presidential elections is usually higher than those at legislative ones, especially if legislative elections take place on a separate date. For example, at the 2012 French presidential election, turnout at the second round was 80.5% - at the legislative elections just a month later, it was only 57.2%.

What percentage of people did not vote in 2008 presidential election?

Obama won the presidential election. The voter turnout for this election was broadly predicted to be very high by American standards, and a record number of votes were cast. The current total number of votes tallied is more than 129 million, compared to 122.3 million in 2004 (the previous record). Expressed as a percentage of eligible voters turnout was estimated to be around 62%. (Source: Wikipedia, United States presidential election, 2008) The 2008 turn-out was up from 60.6 percent four years ago but below the 1964 turnout rate of 64 percent of eligible voters.

How many won't vote in 2012 presidential election?

It is difficult to accurately estimate turnout at US federal elections, as presidential ballots do not take place often enough to make accurate predictions and it is difficult to judge what issues will affect turnout from one election to the next. Turnout is determined by a variety of factors, some complex, some simple - even the weather on polling day can have a dramatic impact on turnout levels. We can however make a tentative estimate of the abstention rate based on previous Presidential elections. There have been five elections since 1965 in which an incumbent President was up for re-election - 1972, 1984, 1992, 1996 and 2004. Based on these elections, we can expect approximately 27% of all registered voters will not vote in the 2012 presidential election, representing 47% of the entire adult population (including non-registered voters).

He first became acting president on 2002 November 25 when then president Milo Đukanović resigned to become Prime Minister. Running in the 2003 February presidential election, he received the most votes but the election was invalidated due to low voter turnout.

After the split of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006, he was again re-elected in 2008.

What are the motivating factors responsible for a high voters turnout in 2004 compare to previous years?

Several motivating factors contributed to a high voter turnout in 2004 compared to previous years. These include the highly contested presidential race between George W. Bush and John Kerry, which generated significant public interest and engagement. Additionally, increased efforts by political campaigns and organizations to register and mobilize voters, along with improved accessibility to polling places and early voting options, likely played a role in motivating more people to participate in the electoral process.
