The voter turnout on Election Day was the lowest in more than a half-a-century.

Less than a quarter of all registered voters showed up at the polls to cast their ballots, which is the lowest since 1950.

Turnout was also extremely low in 2009, when just a little more than a quarter of all registered voters came out for Mayor Bloomberg’s victory over Bill Thompson.
