Record number of votes cast in Minnesota on Tuesday


Minnesotans voted in record numbers on Tuesday, the Secretary of State's office said.

The number of voters casting a ballot in the presidential race was 2,938,947. In the last presidential election, 2,921,147 voters cast ballots in the presidential race.

This is based on 99.93 percent of precincts reporting, and will increase slightly, Ritchie's office said.

While the raw number of voters is the highest ever, the 76 percent turnout -- based on the number of eligible voters -- is not the highest. The number of eligible voters has increased by 135,238 since 2008, Ritchie's office said.
