Voter Turnout Statistics

NOTE: These statistics provide information by ward and precinct, and the boundaries of those wards and precincts change over time. After the national census is completed every 10 years, ward boundaries are redrawn. Precinct boundaries are also changed at that time, and may be altered at other times when precincts needed to be either added or removed.

Comparisons over time need to take changes to ward and precinct boundaries into account.
