299,398,484 total population

225,746,457 total population over 18 years

122,394,724 total number of US citizens that voted in 2008 election

= 54% of population voted.

Between 22 and 24 million Americans ages 18-29 voted, resulting in an estimated youth voter turnout of between 49.3 and 54.5 percent.

Sixty-six percent of young voters cast their ballot for Barack Obama, the largest-ever showing for a presidential candidate in this age group.

131,463,122 people voted for U. S. President and Vice President in 2008.
