Graph of the Week: How Idaho Voted in Obama v. McCain, 2008


Between now and Tuesday, Nov. 6, voters return to the ballot box across the state to once again consider candidates for the nation's highest office.

But a little less than four years ago, Idaho's voters cast ballots that helped to decide the 2008 presidential election. In that race, Idaho's voter turnout was higher than two previous presidential elections, with 77.5 percent of voters casting a ballot, according to the Secretary of State's Office.

This year, as early as Monday, Oct. 15, a number of Ada County's 212,000 registered voters were lined up and ready to vote.
