    Obviously, COVID changes the equation some, and people are more likely to vote early one way or another to avoid the crowding at the polls on Election Day. But some of these numbers are pretty striking.

    In battleground states across the country, young voters are turning out in bigger numbers than in previous elections, according to an analysis by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement. And no state has made a larger gain in youth voting than Texas.

    In Texas, as of Friday, 753,600 voters cast a ballot in the 2020 election. During the same time period in 2016, only 106,000 Texans younger than 30 had voted, according to the analysis, representing a 610% increase.

    In Texas, younger voters have recently gotten more involved in elections. In the midterm elections of 2018, turnout tripled among voters younger than 30 compared to the previous midterm election in 2014.

    This is probably good news for Biden, but how much we cannot be certain, as many/most of these young voters might have voted anyway on Election Day.

    That is fantastic! I've always encouraged my children to vote. Glad to see how many people are putting action behind their beliefs.

    They will need to. They are going to be inheriting the world we are leaving them.

    There's actually a study that says liberal boomers have less children than conservative boomers. I think it's 1.7 to 2.1 which would make sense given each others position on abortion.

    Fortunately, politics are not genetic.

    No, but of you raised your child correctly, then you certainly wouldn't dress them up as a woman who's vote on the SC could have cost your life.

    What is wrong with RBG? A strong female model for young girls.

    Yeah, we're going to have to agree to disagree on both counts there.

    Anyone who supports abortion is not an acceptable role model for my children; all other qualities notwithstanding.

    . It’s because liberals don’t think of themselves as just baby machines or feel that they should be submissive to men( aka putting up with a toxic man)

    Sooner or later, your kids will think for themselves and decide what's acceptable.

    I'm just talking about a basic appreciation for the 6th commandment, but we have people like Lena Dunham wishing she could be part of the abortion club.

    I await your reaction to the court torpedoing the ACA and booting people of their health insurance.
