Millennials, Gen Xers, and Boomers Have Voted at Similar Rates When They Were The Same Age
The voter turnout in presidential elections of each generation (defined by birth years below) in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. elections in which the entire age cohort (ages 18-24) was eligible to vote.
Note: For Boomers, the first presidential election was 1972, for Gen X it was 1992, and for Millennials it was 2008. We cannot yet produce the same analysis for Gen Z because some members of that generation are still ineligible to vote.
