Youth voter turnout spiked during the midterms. Now what?
When making sense of the youth voter turnout in the 2018 midterm elections, there’s good news, bad news, and some more good news.
Early estimates show young people voted at historic rates. About 31 percent of people aged 18 to 29 voted in the midterms this year (a significant increase from 21 percent in 2014), according to a day-after exit poll by Tufts University’s Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement. The estimate suggests the midterm elections marked the highest level of participation among young voters in the past quarter century.
