Pew: Millennials, Gen Xers Could Out Vote Baby Boomers This Election

A 'vote here 'sign stands outside a polling station across from the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, on February 20, 2016.
According to a Pew analysis of U.S. Census data, since 1980 Baby Boomers and their antecedents have cast the most votes in each presidential election. As the number of older voters decline and younger voters — supplemented by naturalizations of foreign-born adults — increase the electorate has experienced a shift toward Millennial and Generation voters.
