THE CALCULUS• Traditional Method of Estimating

Turnout

• Apply turnout to current registration

• Increase Expected Vote Rate

Turnout + Turnout + TurnoutRegistration + Registration + Registration

= Turnout Rate

Turnout Rate x Current VAP = Expected Vote

Expected Vote x (increase) = Turnout for this Cycle
