Young New York City voters went to the polls in 2020 election, analysis finds


Young voters had the highest increase in voter turnout in last year’s election compared to previous presidential election years, according to a report published by the city last week.

The 2020-2021 Voter Analysis Report, which analyzes the 2020 election year and makes policy recommendations based off of its findings, found that voters ages 18 to 29 increased their voter turnout in the 2020 elections by 3.4% compared to 2016. That is the highest increase in turnout of any age group in the city and a statistic that NYC Votes, the nonpartisan voter engagement initiative by the New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB) and its Voter Assistance Advisory Committee that published the report, said they plan to capitalize on.
