2020’s States with the Most & Least Powerful Voters – WalletHub Study

In order to determine the states with the most and least influential voters, WalletHub calculated the Voter Power Scores for both presidential and Senate elections in each state.

For presidential elections, WalletHub used the “win probabilities” calculated by fivethirtyeight.com and graded each state election on a 100-point scale, with 100 points being awarded to the states with literally a 50 percent chance of swinging either Red or Blue (50-50) and 0 points to the states with zero chance of one party determining the election (100-0).

WalletHub then multiplied the win probability score by the number of electors of a given state and divided the product by the state’s population aged 18 and older. Finally, the result was multiplied by 1,000,000 in order to calculate the Presidential Election Voter Power Score for that state.
