Data released by the U.S. Census Bureau today shows Minnesota ranks #21 in the nation in population, with a little over 5 million people. Wisconsin is just ahead at #20.
75.8% of Minnesota's population is 18 or over (voting age), only slightly more than the national average (75.5%). That puts us in 29th place in that category.
Utah, by contrast, has only 69.1% of its population old enough to vote.
