5 reasons Minnesota is tops at voting

For those of you outside Hurricane Sandy’s path, here’s a fun fact: Minnesota is a voting paradise. The state had a turnout rate near 80% in 2008. Wowza. 

Here are five reasons why that’s the case. Read the full story on CNN.com.

  1. Same-day voter registration laws
  2. Hearty, Midwestern civic culture
  3. They raise awareness about voting
  4. No voter ID laws
  5. A competitive, multi-party political scene
