Not all votes are necessarily created equal under the electoral college and partisan makeup of American states.

The personal finance website Wallethub compared the relative clout of voters in swinging the presidency and U.S. Senate and calculated a voter power ranking of the 50 states. Those rated highest were states with closely divided electorates.

Georgia, which is now rated a tossup in the presidential election and has both of its U.S. Senate seats up for election, ranked among the top states for "powerful voters."

1. Alaska

2. Iowa

3. Ohio

4. Georgia

5. Arizona

Tennessee ranked No. 25 and Alabama ranked No. 31 in the presidential election. But in a similar survey of voting power in Congress, Alabama ranked No. 6.
