Young American voters hold key to White House by Kenyans247(1): Thu 05, November, 2020 02:15pm
Young electors in the US have been making their voices heard and although the votes are being counted, their choice could shape the outcome of the closely-fought 2020 presidential election and decide the presidency of the world's oldest democracy. According to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University, voters aged between 18 and 29 are voting in record numbers, including more than eight million young people who voted early or absentee in the 2020 elections. I think with the recent happenings, racial injustice and the pandemic, it's kind of driving people to be more passionate about the things that are happening in our world as well as just passionate about electing leaders that have the same ideas and values that they do, Texas Southern University junior Mariah Campbell said. Young voters have been making their voices heard and mobilising, an extension of rising youth activism in response to concerns over issues such as racial inequality, climate change and gun violence, CIRCLE said. According to an analysis from the CIRCLE, the preeminent, non-partisan research center on youth engagement at Tufts University's Jonathan M Tisch College of Civic Life, youth votes have been crucial in the 2020 elections. In Pennsylvania, youth made up 14 per cent of the vote and supported Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden by +23; in Michigan, they made up 15 per cent of the vote and supported Biden by +29; in North Carolina, they made up 16 per cent of the vote and supported Biden by +16; in Georgia, they made up 21 per cent and supported Biden by +15 and in Arizona, they made up 17 per cent of the vote and supported Biden by +28, it said.
