Michigan’s youth voter turnout in 2022 election was best in US, report says

A new report from the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University shows that young people in Michigan turned out to vote in the November 2022 midterm elections at a higher rate than any other state in the country. Michigan voters ages 18-29 showed up to vote at a rate of 37%, significantly higher than the national average youth voter turnout of 23%. Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson believes these positive statistics reflect her administration’s efforts to improve voter access and education for high school students, college students, and with large employers and other organizations that interact with young people.
