North Dakotans are used to seeing themselves among the top states in terms of voter turnout.
But the 2016 election tells a slightly different story.
North Dakota had a decent turnout – 64 percent of eligible voters, according to U.S. Census Bureau data (N.D. Secretary of State data says 61 percent).
But that only ranks North Dakota at #18 in terms of states with the highest voter turnout, according to a survey by financial website 24/7 Wall St.
It seems 17 states did better than “The Peace Garden State.”
Minnesota came in at #5 with a 69 percent voter turnout.
Montana was 13th with a 66 percent voter turnout, while South Dakota came in at 38th with a 59 percent voter turnout.
The top three states with the highest voter turnout in the 2016 elections: Maine (73 percent), Wisconsin (71 percent) and Colorado (70 percent).
