As another election approaches, reports of the elusive millennial voter and what effect they could have on the 2018 midterms have started to crop up again. Could this be the election that voters born between 1981 and 1998 turn out in record numbers, surpassing the number of baby boomers at the polls?
This election has been billed as one in which young people form a powerful voting bloc, propelled by the momentum generated by school shootings earlier in the year, and mobilised by celebrities like Taylor Swift and Rihanna. But will they turn up on the day?
Defined by Pew as those born between 1981 to 1996, millennials make up about 22% of the US population, and at some point between November's midterms and the 2020 election, they're expected to surpass baby boomers as America's largest living generation. They're a massive voting bloc, capable of setting policy priorities and swinging elections. They're also grossly underrepresented in American politics.
We are legislators from opposite parties. Here’s why we’re working together. As two younger legislators from opposite parties, we may not have much in common at first glance. However, we are both part of a national movement of younger state legislators who are committed to addressing the most pressing issues facing the next generation through innovative, bipartisan policy solutions.
Of the 90 legislators in the Oregon House and Senate, only eight are 42 or younger. Those lawmakers now make up the Oregon Future Caucus, which officially launched this week to find policy solutions to problems that younger Oregonians face.
Representative Julie Fahey (D-14), Senator Dallas Heard (R-1), Representative Diego Hernandez (D-47), and Representative David Brock Smith (R-1) announced the creation of the bipartisan Oregon Future Caucus, a brand-new caucus comprised of state legislators under age 42. The announcement is part of a nation-wide movement in state houses across the country where young legislators are seeking to find common ground in an era of hyper partisanship.
