Correlation Between Voting Method and Turnout?

A friend of mine who lives in College Park, Maryland was recently complaining about how his vote in the presidential election doesn't matter because Maryland always goes overwhelmingly for the Democrats. He was wondering if there was any research regarding a relationship between voting method (winner take all, proportional representation, instant runoff, etc.) and turnout.

I found a wealth of information on this subject at and I definitely recommend the site (which is non-partisan) to anyone interested in the subject.
