Characteristics of Voters in the Presidential Election of 2016

Written by:
Report Number P20-582


For American citizens, voting is among the most fundamental and important civic opportunities. Since 1964, every 2 years following national elections, the U.S. Census Bureau has fielded the Voting and Registration Supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS). The estimates derived from this survey provide some of the most consistently reliable estimates of the social, economic, and demographic characteristics of American voters available to the public.
