Voter turnout fell in Minnesota, but the state's (likely) back on top
Voter turnout dropped in Minnesota, yet it was strong enough that the state has likely regained its No. 1 spot.
About 74 percent of eligible voters in Minnesota cast a ballot in Tuesday’s election, preliminary numbers show, bolstered by expanded early voting.
“That’s European level,” said Carleton College political science professor Steven Schier. “Most impressive ... particularly because the top of the ticket for both major parties featured people of record unpopularity.”
