What the 50+ Vote Looks Like

Older Americans turned out at the polls with plenty of enthusiasm.

 

 

 

Older voters matched expectations and turned out in large numbers across the country for the 2010 midterm elections. Voters age 50+ provided nearly six of every 10 votes, two years after casting a bit more than 40 percent of ballots in the presidential race that saw younger voters turning out in record numbers. Voters 65+ cast about a quarter of all ballots on Nov. 2, the highest percentage since 1994.

But those are just numbers. To see what the people looked like, watch the slideshow above.
