"Fresh reports show that 90 million eligible American voters have decided to withhold their ballots in the 57th US presidential election. Monday reports showed that out of 207 million eligible voters in the US, only 150 million have registered to take part in the election."

"A Gallup poll of 6,520 US-based registered voters from October 15 to 28 has also showed that electoral participation in this year’s election is expected to be lower than the turnout in the two previous elections."--PressTV
