Younger voters turning out in larger numbers

Political Wire -A new TargetSmart analysis shows that a previously reported uptick in voter registration for young people aged 18-29 is a sustained trend, and turnout by young people during the primaries has increased as well.

“The new analysis found that 18-29 year olds are not only registering at a higher rate since the Parkland shooting, they are also voting at a higher rate. Election turnout amongst youth voters has increased by an average of 4% nationwide in 2018 primary elections compared to 2014 primary elections, and has more than doubled in some key battleground states compared to 2014.”
