2024 Youth Electoral Significance Index

Where Will Young Voters Influence 2024 Election Results?

CIRCLE’s Youth Electoral Significance Index (YESI) ranks the states and districts where young people across the political spectrum are most likely to shape Presidential, Senate, and House races in 2024. The index is based on a number of factors including projected competitiveness, voting laws, past youth participation, and various demographic and socioeconomic attributes. But the rankings are not a prediction—they are a sign of potential that will only be realized if campaigns, communities, and organizations invest in engaging all young people.
