Big Voter Turnout Seen Among Young People

No doubt about it. The growth in the youth vote was substantial. More than 29% over 2000. Kerry owes the closeness of this election to that demographic. Yahoo News! :
"Under-30 voters came through in big numbers this year, with more than 20 million casting a ballot for president, researchers found. The turnout bested their 2000 showing by more than nine percentage points and heartened activists who worked to get young voters to the polls. "
