Florida ranks 33rd of least politically engaged states

With less than a week until Election Day and nearly four in 10 voters in states with no voter-ID requirements falsely believing they must present identification in order to vote, the personal-finance website WalletHub provided Historic City News with the results of their in-depth analysis of 2016’s Most and Least Politically Engaged States.

In order to determine where Americans are most involved in politics, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across seven key indicators of political engagement. They range from “percentage of registered voters in the 2012 presidential election” to “total political contributions per adult population.”

Political Engagement in Florida (1=Most; 25=Avg.)

  • 40th – % of Registered Voters in 2012 Presidential Election
  • 23rd – % of Electorate Who Voted in 2014 Midterm Elections
  • 36th – % of Electorate Who Voted in 2012 Presidential Election
  • 37th – Change in % Who Actually Voted in 2012 Elections vs. 2008 Elections
  • 17th – Total Political Contributions per Adult Population
  • 9th – Civic Education Engagement
