Stepping It Up

Despite hazardous weather conditions across the country, a ticker-tape parade in New York City, and reports of difficulties at the polls, young voters (i.e.: YOU) made their voices heard in record numbers! Though data for all 22 states is not yet available, the numbers published so far are extremely encouraging. In several states, youth voter turnout doubled, tripled, even QUADRUPLED! And in New York, while voter turnout among older voters actually decreased, young voters stayed strong and consistent at 12%.
