57% of registered voters cast 273,600 votes

let’s write the registered voters as x

57% of x = 273,600

57% = 0.57

0.57 * x = 273,600

divide both sides by 0.57

x = 480,000

To check:

57% of 480,000 =?= 273,600

0.57 * 480,000 =?= 273,600

273,600 = 273,600

There are 480,000 registered voters.

Hope this helps
