STATISTICS

Table S shows the statewide figures of the voters who were purged from the
voters lists because of failure to vote in the 1970 Primary and General Elections.
The figures are also broken down by counties and representative districts. The
County of Maui had the lowest purged figure with 8.2%, while the City and County
of Honolulu had the highest with 13.7%. The 12th Representative District (Waikiki)
had an exceptionally high of 21.2%. The 4th Representative District in the County
of Hawaii had a low of 7.1%. The statewide figures averaged out to 12.6%.

Table T shows the statewide figures of voters categorized by sex and party pref-
erence for the 1970 General Election. Breaking it down by sex, 50.3% of the regis-
tered voters were males and 49.7% females. Categorizing the voters by party pref-
erence, 45.8% preferred voting the Democratic Party primary ballot, 12.6% the
Republican Party and 41.6% were undesignated. Note that the party preference
breakdown shows the totals prior to the Primary Election of 1970. The breakdown
after the Primary were not readily available.

Table U shows the statewide figures for registered voters, votes cast and per-
centage of votes cast for the primary elections from 1928-1970. Table V shows sim-
ilar figures for the general elections from 1900-1970. Both of these tables also show
the figures broken down by counties. The primary election turnout percentage
ranged from a low of 62.7% to a high of 87.1%, with an average of 76.1%. The general
election turnout percentage ranged from a low of 66.5% to a high of 93.8%, with an
average of 86.2%.

Lieutenant Governor Boucher. In the State of Alaska, we have
developed what we like to call an outreach program. I became quite
concerned when we assumed office why, after the Congress had seen
fit to establish the 18-year-old voter age, why more young people
were not participating. So we spent the better part of a year and a
half visiting in high schools throughout the State.

At the end of this year-and-a-half period, close to 95 percent of
our young people were registered. We did not quite have the par-
ticipation that we had hoped for ; however, we believe the participation
in our State was considerably better among younger voters than the
nationwide average.

In registering a person in Alaska, there are, despite the small popu-
lation, large problems. For example, let us overlay the State of Alaska
on our sister States in the South, and place Anchorage where AVichita,
Kans. is. Our office has the responsibility for registering 110 people
in the small Aleution island of Attu. This would be the equivalent
to registering these persons in San Diego.

Our village community of Bettles, Alaska, to the north, we would
have several thousand people to register in the Chicago area.

So we mobilized our forces throughout the State and the various
civic organizations and we decided that an outreach program would
accomplish the results that we desired.

In 1970 there were slightly under 100,000 people registered in the
State of Alaska. We will be conducting a special election on March 6
this year to replace our late and beloved Congressman Begich, and we
will have 155,000 people registered. This is well over the '80-percent
mark and we believe that the 80-percent mark is the minimum accept-
