Why Voting is Important
1. Young people who vote play an important role in the 2020 presidential election.
Research suggests that if young people voted as much as older citizens, elected officials would be more likely to prioritize the policy issues that are important to them. Young people will make up more than one-third of eligible voters, which means they hold a lot of power if they exercise their right to go to the polls. Generation Z, people between the ages of 18 and 23, will also be more ethnically and racially diverse than previous generations in 2020. People of color are expected to account for one-third of eligible voters.

While young people are historically the group least likely to vote for several reasons, either because they lack encouragement and information, or think they won’t make a difference and find the process too complicated, that could change soon. The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement estimated that 31% of eligible people ages 18 to 29 voted in the 2018 midterms — a record turnout. What’s more, almost twice as many millennials voted in 2018 compared to 2014.
