Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
...In the US, the extreme case, only about 50% of potential electors bother to vote

It's lower than that.  In 2010 only 32.7% registered voters, representing 26.9% of the population of Texas, participated in the election.  In the 2014 election 29% representing 27.9% of the total population of Mississippi voted, the average turnout in 2014 was 36.7%.
