Sadly, far too few.  We get about 60% voter turnout during presidential elections and 40% voter turnout during the midterms (like this one).

 

Other countries look at us rather confused because we push 'democracy' all over the world and then don't even exercise it ourselves.

That's legitimate scary. Is there a reason to why it's so low?

We had a rate of 87% I believe in our latest election

We vote on a workday (Tuesday), have few voting locations (some lines can take 6 hours to vote), apathy (some will say my life is good enough so I don't need to vote), disenfranchisement (every state has different voter registration laws) and general distrust or frustration with the system.
