Young people (ages 18-29) played a pivotal role in the 2020 election. They drastically increased their turnout from 2016, and their strong preference for Democrats was decisive in the presidential, Senate, and House races. But young voters’ continued participation is not a given, and will require concerted efforts to sustain—and improve—in 2022 and beyond.
Join experts from the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE), part of Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life, for a conversation about the youth vote in 2020 and in the future. We’ll share exclusive data on youth voter turnout nationally and state by state, as well as research-based insights on what works to engage the youth electorate. We’ll also dispel some myths about young voters; discuss the role of social media; and talk about the laws, policies, and practices that support more equitable civic development and electoral participation for all youth.
This discussion w/CIRCLE's Kelly Beadle and Alberto Medina will take place on Tuesday, June 15th at 1pm ET. Tufts Alum Simon Rosenberg will host and moderate the discussion.
