Wisconsin among just 12 were voter turnout dropped
Wisconsin is one of just 12 states where the voter turnout for last month's presidential election went down from 2004.
American University's Center for the Study of the American Electorate estimated the state's turnout at 71.3 percent of eligible voters. That was down 2.5 percent from the 2004 contest and it was the nation's fourth-biggest decline.
But Wisconsin had the country's third-highest turnout anyway, trailing only Colorado and Minnesota.
