People don’t vote for many different reasons, but a consistent excuse is that voting just takes too much time. During the 2012 election, the Government Accountability Office collected data from 36 states to find the average wait time for voting.

At 35 minutes, Florida had the longest wait time. Residents of Alaska and Vermont enjoyed an average wait of only 2 minutes.

Alabama’s average wait time for voters in 2012 clocked in at 10.5 minutes.

Vox.com used this data to create an interactive map showing the average voter wait time for each state. Check out the map below and see how other states compare to Alabama.
