From the United States Census:

Today the U.S. Census Bureau released the 2018 voting and registration table package. These November 2018 election data come from the Voting and Registration Supplement to the Current Population Survey, which surveys the civilian noninstitutionalized population in the United States.

This table package [14 tables, .xls] provides data down to the state level on voter turnout and shows the use of alternative voting methods. These tables also present a portrait of the voting population by demographic and economic variables including race, sex, age, educational attainment, employment status, tenure, income, disability, marital status, citizenship and veteran status. 

The Census Bureau has fielded the Voting and Registration Supplement to the Current Population Survey every two years since 1964. For data from previous election years, visit the Voting and Registration page.
