Did you vote this year? Or did you assume your vote wouldn’t make a difference? Voter turnout for 2012 fell to 118 million from 2008’s impressive turnout of 131 million, with only 60% of eligible voters actually exercising their right to choose their government. In an election where the difference in the popular vote was less than 5 million, the 78 million people who chose not to vote might have made a huge difference. So how did President Obama get out the vote? Tweets, likes and status updates. Check out the following infographic to see how Obama bested Romney through a war waged on social media.
