The voter registration rate in presidential elections among young people reached its highest level in thirty years in 2004. Seventy percent of young people, ages 18-29, said they were registered to vote in the 2004 Presidential election, according to analysis of the Current Population Survey, November (Voting) Supplement. This rise in registration rates is promising for the youth vote since registering to vote is sometimes more difficult than the act of voting itself. This fact sheet also contains information on how citizens register to vote and, if they do not register to vote, the reasons why some do not register to vote.
