In the two years between the 2018 midterms and the 2020 election, some 8 million more Post-Millennials (aka Generation Z) will reach voting age. That’s how Generation Z is quickly becoming the biggest voting block since the baby boomers. And they’re ready to take on democracy.

But guess what? These 18 and 19 year-olds won’t agree on everything, nor did any generation before them. It’s the fact they’re speaking up that bodes well for the nation because …

This IS how democracy works.

So, If you’re one of those 8 million, go register! Every State handles that process differently so search for Voter Registration + your State. Better yet, if you’re in one of the 37 states that let you register online, you can do it right now by going to ncsl.org.

 

The Millennial and Post-Millennial vote was  about 31% in the 2018 midterms, up 10% compared to the midterms of 2014. In the Presidential election, which always has higher vote totals than midterms, just over 50% of those between 18 and 29 voted. If Millennials (born 1981-1995) and Generation Z (born after 1995)  turned that 50% into 60 or 70%, the youth of our nation  could literally change the world.
