Shame!

Florida has a population of around 18.5 million people.  About 12 million are registered to vote.

5,344,493 people voted for a gubernatorial candidate.

2,611,968 voted for the winner.

44.5% of the voting population voted.  21.8% voted for the new governor.

That's not a massive percentage.

6.5 million people aren't registered to vote.  I assume many are ineligible for one reason or another.

It's the nearly 6.7 million people who are registered and didn't bother who should be ashamed!

It's entirely possible that these voters are people who've been registered by our motor voter law and never intended to vote.  But that's sure a whole lot of people.
