Shenandoah Valley Sees Record Midterm Voting

8 November 2018 News


According to unofficial tallies from the Virginia Department of Elections, voter turnout in Tuesday’s midterm elections far exceeded that of 2014 across the Shenandoah Valley.

Over 2,300 more people in Clarke County, 5,000 more in Winchester, and 13,000 more in Frederick County voted this year compared to the November 2014 elections. That data is reflected in the 6th district as well, where only two of 245 precincts showed a lower voter turnout than 2014; most precincts saw an increase in voting between 10 and 20 percent, and the Woodstock and Lebanon Church precincts had an over 30 percent increase in their turnout rate. An estimate from the New York Times shows that this change was reflected nationally as well; 114 million people voted in the 2018 midterms, as compared to 83 million in 2014.
