A good number. Twice as many voters between 18-29 voted this year than in 2000. 13% of voters in Florida were first time voters. Some of this could be due to the general trends in terms of turnout. The young voter numbers will be interesting to watch.
Update: Looks like the youth didn’t show up in the numbers many had expected –
From Kos: MSNBC exit poll indicates that the youth did not vote. The 18-29 bracket voted the same this year as in 2000, while 30-44 group was down. That’s what’s killing us.
These numbers make Eminem look like Vanilla Ice.
