You’re listening to the American Democracy Minute, keeping YOUR government by and for the people.

Yesterday, we shared results from a Tufts University poll which found that the 27% turnout of young voters was critical to the outcome of the midterm election, particularly in battleground states. We have more from that poll today, including the turnout by young voters of color.

The poll from Tufts University’s Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, CIRCLE, showed that in U.S. House races, younger white voters 18-29 favored Democratic candidates, 57% to 39%, with 4% other. Among younger Black voters, 87% voted Democratic, 9% Republican, and 4% other. Younger Latino voters chose Democrats to a lesser percentage, but still 67% Democrat, 30% Republican and 3% other.

Gender breakouts from the poll are also interesting. Young women 18-29 voted 71% for Democrats, and 26% for Republicans. Young men voted 53% Democratic and 42% Republican. Among LGBT youth, 93% voted for Democratic U.S. House candidates.

These demographics won’t go unnoticed. We’ll be discussing in an upcoming report what state legislation we can expect to make it complicated for younger citizens to exercise their freedom to vote.
