Supporting the Youth Vote in 2020

Organizer: Gallup and the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement

The 2020 general election has taken on renewed importance as the twin crises of racial injustice and a global pandemic profoundly change American life. For the generation just now coming of age and finding its voice politically, this year's election offers an opportunity to shape the country's future.

Join the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE), part of Tufts University's Tisch College of Civic Life, and Gallup for a discussion on youth participation in the political process this November and beyond. Based on new research, the conversation will focus on:

  • The political behaviors and attitudes of younger Millennials and Generation Z, many of whom will be voting in their first presidential election
  • Young Americans' support for different candidates, and whether those candidates are reaching out to them
  • Young Americans' activism and overall civic engagement, and their access to the election process—especially given changes to elections due to COVID-19
  • The issues at the core of young people's interest in casting a ballot in November, with a special attention to the concerns of youth of color
