Once again, more people used the internet than voted

Despite the welcome rise in turnout at the May 2010 general election, it continues to be the case that more people use the internet in the UK than vote at elections.

Here’s the data:

  • General election turnout, May 2010 (UK): 65%
  • Internet usage (UK adults, Ofcom 2010 survey): 73%

A reminder about the importance of campaigning well online.
