Non-voters by Age?

T.B. asked on Front Porch Forum,

“Is it possible to get a breakdown of non voters by age? Are some segments of our population more disengaged than others?”

Good question. Let’s see what we can find out.

According to http://www.electproject.org/home/voter-turnout/demographics:

voter turnout age

Yes, the younger voters turn out less. The older you are, the more likely you are to vote. Good information to know if you’re planning a campaign to get out the vote.

In Burlington we have two universities we could reach out to. Even high school students need to learn more about the importance of voting. There’s a lot we can do in this area.
