Young voters came out to vote in this year’s midterm elections in the second largest percentage in at least thirty years.
The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University released an early estimate showing that around 27% of people ages 18 to 29 voted in 2022. Around 20% of young people typically came out to vote in elections since the 1990s, but in 2018, that changed. Four years ago, around 31% of eligible young voters in that age range voted.
Youth are increasing their electoral participation, leading movements, and making their voices heard on key issues that affect their communities.
Here is how they split nationally on candidates by political party.
