Minnesotans still rock the vote
We're still on top of the nation when it comes to the percentage of residents casting their ballots on Election Day.
Minnesota and the District of Columbia made the top of the list, with 75 percent voter turnout. The national average is 63.6 percent. The Midwest was also the top region with 66 percent voter turnout.
And which states are the most un-American? Hawaii and Utah with just 52 percent voter turnout.
Nationwide, 131 million cast their ballot in the 2008 presidential election. That's an increase of 5 million from 2004.
