Where does the youth vote matter most? Of all House districts nationwide, Michigan’s 3rd District — the region of Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Grand Haven — ranks 7th in the most young voters, according to Tufts University Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Participation.

In 2020, 13% of all votes cast in Michigan’s presidential election went to people aged 18-29, with 62% choosing President Joe Biden and 35% voting for Donald Trump.

This Democratic turnout is a compelling reason for the Democratic National Committee to show Michigan’s youth where they stand this weekend and encourage them to register to vote.

“The stakes are high in this November’s election, so the DNC is meeting young voters where they are to encourage them to register to vote and make their voices heard,” said DNC State Communications Director Brooke Garren.

If you’re attending or watching the University of Michigan vs. Maryland game or the Michigan State vs. Minnesota game this weekend, you’ll see banners flying overhead urging Michigan residents to go online and register.

“Whether you’re a Wolverine or a Spartan, every eligible Michigander should visit IWILLVOTE.com to find out how they can register,” Garren said.

Aerial advertising is part of a a six-figure company in a dozen states, encouraging young voters to register ahead of the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
