Importance of Young People in Elections

Young people are a major subset of the electorate and their voices matter!!

Here are some facts to think about:

1. 46 million young people ages 18-29 years old are eligible to vote, while 39 million seniors are eligible to vote.

2. Young people (18-29) make up 21% of the voting eligible population in the U.S.

3. At least 80 electoral votes depend on youth.

4. In Ohio, without the young vote Ohio would have been a Red state

5. Did you know that the difference between winning and losing a seat on University Heights City Council can be as little as 15 votes?
