Midterm election turnout proves to be low

LANSING, MI (AP)--   Election officials say fewer people participated in Michigan's general election than four years ago.

Voter turnout was 41.6 percent of the voting-age population, down from 42.9 percent four years ago. It was the lowest turnout on a percentage basis since 1990.
