During the 2018 midterm elections two voting demographics stood under the spotlight, women and young voters; I identify with both groups. Despite speculation on if these demographics would show in as strong numbers as anticipated, we did not disappoint.
The election brought the public's attention to young female voters, and proved that this demographic is showing up more than ever and has the power to influence the polls in a big way.
This election, I believe, was no fluke but rather represents a new and ongoing trend in voting. Here is why the United States should continue to pay attention to young female voters.
