Pre-registering young people to vote will remove one of the barriers to their participating in elections. Given that youth ages 18-24 are 20 percent less likely than the general population to be registered to vote, this is a worthwhile cause.
Simply pre-registering young people to vote won’t necessarily lead to their participation in elections. It may not be worth the time, money, and effort that’d be spent on this bill if the young people who are pre-registered under this bill don’t actually cast ballots.
