Data-Informed Solutions for Youth Voting and Civic Engagement

Minnesota led the nation in 2018 for youth voter turnout, but even with an over 20% rise from 2014, that turnout was STILL under 45%. What does current research say will happen in 2020? Join us in an exploration of the successes in youth voter turnout and the data that show what has worked, and a look at how a more engaged young electorate may challenge the traditional approach to policy making and require new tactics for political outreach and engagement efforts. The event will feature Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, director of the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University as well as Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon and a student panel. 

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, Lead MN, Students United and the MInnesota Youth Collective. 

The Center for the Study of Politics and Governance events are free and open to the public. If you are having trouble registering or to request disability accommodations contact
