In the past, young eligible citizens have had a low voter turnout, but the 2020 election may be different. 

 

A recent Harvard Kennedy School poll of 18 to 29 year olds found a high proportion of respondents said they will ‘definitely be voting.’ The results suggest this age group could see a higher turnout than has been reported in decades. 

We hear from Esther David, 19 and Joseph Tibesar, 18, two University of Idaho students, on why they’re casting a ballot for the first time. 

 

If you’re a new voter, we’d love to hear your story. Click here on how to get it to us.
