It’s well known that many US states vote in a very predictable way in national elections (e.g. Arkansas has a Partisan Voting Index (PVI) of R+15, two Republican senators, an all-Republican House delegation and a Republican governor, while Hawaii has a PVI of D+18, two Democratic senators, an all-Democratic House and a Democratic governor) while others are considered swing states that might vote either way (e.g. Pennsylvania with an even PVI, one senator of each party and an evenly split House delegation).
I’m curious how these differences affect the turnout in nationwide elections. Naively, one might expect swing states to consistently have a higher turnout as every vote may matter while in one-sided states many voters may think that their vote does not matter. However, I believe there are usually many different elections happening at the same time on Election Day so this simplistic view may not hold as other (local or district) elections may draw voters in.
So how does turnout in national (presidential, Senate and maybe House) elections compare across states? Does turnout correlate with any political indicators?
