The 2020 Youth Vote
This year there was a significant effort to get young people to vote. And that effort paid off. Researchers are still crunching the numbers, but the latest data suggests that around 50 percent of voting-eligible young people, ages 18-29, cast a ballot in the 2020 Presidential election.
Today on The Full Story, we’ll explore how the youth vote can shape elections and how young people shaped one of the most historic Presidential races in recent memory.
