Raw Data: Voter Turnout By State

After reading my post this morning about voter turnout rates, a friend asks if I can break this down by state. His wish is my command:

Nationally, voter turnout was up about 1 point from 2012. However, in Oregon it was up about 5 percent. In Wisconsin it was down about 3 percent. Of the three big Midwestern swing states, Wisconsin was down 3.5 points, Pennsylvania was up 2.7 points, and Michigan was up 0.9 points.

I don’t know if there are any conclusions to be drawn from this. Nothing obvious pops out at me.

UPDATE: The initial version of this post had all the numbers reversed. It’s now correct.
