This election delivered some astounding voter turnout numbers and left issues dogging the state for years unresolved. Tied for the most astonishing number of the night: 761,124, the turnout of unaffiliated voters in the election. UAFs took the lead in registrations a couple of years ago, and recent figures show them at 39 percent of voters. In this election, they took the lead in turnout at 33 percent of active voters to 32.8 for Democrats and 32.6 for the GOP. The total turnout for this midterm was 68 percent of active registered voters, a tour de force for a midterm.
