In 2008, young voters, especially African-American females significantly increased their turnout rate. This is especially important with respect to the quickly approaching midterm elections. For young women, voter turnout since the 1998 midterm election has been on a steady increase. Despite this, there remains a significant turnout gap among young men and young women. The new CIRCLE fact sheet “Voter Turnout Among Young Women and Men in the 2008 Presidential Election” presents information on voter turnout for women and men with detailed information about racial and ethnic groups, differences in educational background and married and unmarried individuals.
