Proud To Be A Minnesotan

This article in the Star & Tribune contains one of the biggest reasons I’m proud to be a Minnesotan:

“…Minnesotans turned out in enormous numbers on Tuesday, leading the nation in voter turnout and making it the strongest showing in the state in decades.

Seventy-seven percent of eligible Minnesotans voted on Tuesday, according to the Minnesota Secretary of State. Nationwide, 59.6 percent of eligible Americans voted for president, according to the Committee for the Study of the American Electorate in Washington, D.C.

According to the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Elections website the actual percentage is 77.32, meaning 2,828,476 votes were cast out of a estimated 3,658,000 possible. This was the highest since 1960!

Great job everyone! Your voice was heard.
