Arizona residents--do you vote? According to a recent study, just about half of us would say yes to that question.

Financial news organization, 24/7 Wall St., compiled data from four of the most recent presidential elections and found that Arizona ranked among the ten states with the lowest voter turnouts.

The study found that just 58.4 percent of eligible voters took part in recent elections, making it the state with the eighth lowest turnout.

Hawaii showed the lowest turnout rate with just about half of eligible voters participating.

The state with the highest voter turnout rate is Minnesota, with nearly three quarters of all eligible voters taking part.
