Boulder County's voter turnout for the 2022 midterms saw nearly 11,000 fewer votes than the 2018 election. The 6.4% dip reflects trends in voter turnout for this midterm election compared to the 2018 midterms. Midterm elections tend to see fewer voters than years with presidential elections, and 2018 was a historic year for voter turnout. There were 167,208 ballots counted in Boulder County earlier this month compared to 178,643 in 2018. That's equal to 74.5% of active voters this year as opposed to 82.
