DCCC students and their Gen Z partners turned out in unprecedented numbers is the recent midterm elections. Estimates say that about 27% of people ages 18 to 29 cast ballots this November, according to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts.

Generation ‘Z’ makes up about 20% of the population in the United States. According to The Center for Information and Research for Civic Learning and Engagement estimates, the 18–29-year-olds had the highest turnout in three decades. 

The modern young adults are making their voices heard by turning out to vote. 

Although the younger voters do not tend to identify with a specific political party and claim more independence, their message is clear. 

Other generations, policymakers, and politicians must take notice of the informed voters of the youth of the informed generation. Congratulations to the 18-29-year-olds, your voices will be heard when you vote.
