Analysis: 2014 Youth Vote Comparable To Other Midterm Elections

The youth vote in Tuesday's election is reminiscent of the numbers seen in past midterm elections, according to an analysis by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement, a non-partisan research center on youth engagement at Tufts University's Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service.

At least 9.9 million people between the ages of 18 and 29 took part in the 2014 election. This cycle's youth vote of 21.3 percent one day post election is slightly up from 2010, when the figure was 20.4 percent.

According to the researchers, Democrats still have an advantage with young voters, despite the strong year for Republicans.
