KTAR: Study finds only half of millennials register to vote

Monday, July 30, 2018

KTAR News reported that a study done by Morrison Institute for Public Policy at ASU found that despite the fact that millennials outnumber baby boomers in Arizona by about 170,000, only 51 percent of millennials are registered to vote, compared to 74 percent of baby boomers.

“Older adults have a disproportionate say in the state’s political decisions, as young adults choose not to exercise their right to vote," said David Daugherty, one of the authors of the report.

“There’s no guarantee that the younger people who aren’t voting today will suddenly become voters,” said the report's other author, Joseph Garcia. "Voting is a habit. How do we change that?”
