It looks like turnout nationwide is actually going to be down from 2004.

Will be fascinating if it's largely Republicans who stayed home.

Update: Whoops - perils of blogging. Politico reports record turnout.

More than 130 million people turned out to vote Tuesday, the most ever to vote in a presidential election.

With ballots still being counted in some precincts into Wednesday morning, an estimated 64 percent of the electorate turned out, making 2008 the highest percentage turnout in generations.
