Millennial Voters Win With Automatic Voter Registration
Millennials today number more than 83 million individuals and account for nearly one-third of both the labor force and the eligible voting population. Millennials now surpass Baby Boomers as America’s largest generation. Beyond sheer numbers, Millennials also represent the most diverse generation in American history; an unprecedented 44 percent of Millennials identify as a person of color. By 2020, Millennials are expected to make up 40 percent of the eligible voting population. Millennials are steering our country toward a future that is even richer and more multicultural than our past. This changing American electorate, however, has yet to fully realize its political voice.
