I can understand the extreme rise when woman earned the right to vote in 1920. Would have expect a greater rise in 1972 when 18 year-olds were given the right. I recall signs in windows of residential halls around campus in '72 calling for us to Pull Our Dick Out of Washington.

You get more voters after you put them in soup lines for multiple years?
Where was yours located?

Seemed to be big increases Around 1929.......2008 after recession/depression? Later someone smart posted the women vote added in? Not sure when but probably back at the first big uptick. Then the youth vote? I had forgotten all of those factors, of course. and lazy.
