The Democratic Party’s Presidential aspirant for the United States in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, on Wednesday, August 15, said that statistical revelation shows that about 42% of eligible voters did not vote.
The former first lady who was reacting to the outcome of the 2016 election which saw her lost to the Republican candidate Donald Trump, stated this in her twitter page.
She believes that the outcome would have be better if the turnout was higher and call on members of the public to register or check if they are eligible to vote in the 2018 election.
Below is her tweets:
One of the most stunning statistics from the 2016 election is that nearly 42% of eligible voters didn't vote. Historically, midterm turnout is even lower than the turnout rate for presidential years. But we can't afford for anyone to stay home. https://t.co/tTgeqxNqYm
