Will We See Record Turnout for the 2008 Presidential Election?

As were are talking about questions we get asked — and speculating about the election — here’s a good one. What will turnout be this fall? Will we see record voter turnout?

What I’ll offer at this point are some links to a variety of reports about state and local predictions about turnout:

Alabama: “Secretary of State Predicts Record Turnout.”

Chicago: “Clerk Braces for Record Turnout.”

Indiana: “Rokita Says 65 Percent Turnout Possible.”

Anyone want to venture a prediction about what national turnout will be in this fall’s presidential election?
