In today’s society, newspapers play as important a role as ever when it comes to reaching voters. In fact, research shows:

• 92-percent of all registered voters read a newspaper either in print or online at least once a week.

• 64-percent read a newspaper daily or several times a week.

• Nine out 10 newspaper readers cast ballots in presidential election years.

In fact, 93-percent of Republicans; 93-percent of Democrats and 90-percent of Independents; 91-percent of men and 87-percent of women are regular newspapers readers as compared to 60-percent of Americans who have never used Facebook.

Bottom line – voters read and readers vote.
