Minnesota led the nation in 2018 for youth voter turnout, doubling the turnout from the 2014 election. What does current research say will happen in 2020?
Join us in an exploration of the successes in youth voter turnout and the data that show what has worked, and a look at how a more engaged young electorate may challenge the traditional approach to policy making and require new tactics for political outreach and engagement efforts.
The event will feature Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, director of the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University as well as Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon and a student panel.
