With Independence Day just around the corner, it's nice to learn that we Mainer's are one of the most patriotic people in the country. What gives us such a high score?

According to WalletHub, Maine ranks 11th out of the 50 states for its level of patriotism. If you want to read the methodology and don't mind a little math you can do that, but hey...we're 11th and number on in New England!

We also scored #1 for highest percentage of adults who voted in the 2016 election. We're not sure what that stat means though with that language, because you have to be an adult to vote, right? No matter, we're number 1! Happy 4th of July!
