ALABAMA (WDHN)—With election season coming in full swing and the 2022 mid-terms approaching quickly, it’s important to know how to vote, and where your state stands in the fold. Alabama has ranked among the worst states for political engagement.

Alabama is ranked #48 in the country’s most politically engaged states, holding spots over only West Virginia(#49) and Arkansas (#50).

Florida ranks #31 in most politically engaged states, and Georgia ranks #25.

Many factors play into a state’s political engagement including income, region, and education.

Alabama is in the top 5 least educated states, standing at #46 in the country. For the worst school systems in the country, the state ranks a little higher at #42.

For income, only 47.1% of American voters with a family income of $10,000 and under voted in the 2020 election. Alternatively, a higher 84.8% of American voters with a family income of $150,000 voted in the 2020 election.

Presidential elections have trends of activating more citizen engagement. According to WalletHub, a record 155 million Americans voted in the 2020 election. While that number seems high, it only represents 66.8% of the American voting-age population. It has also been determined by the financial site that blue states have a higher voter turnout than red states.
