This project will delve into the youth vote from the 2017 municipal election in addition to the 2013 municipal election for comparison. The purpose of this project is to determine what turnout was like among youth voters across wards, life stages, employment statuses, and any other demographics that are available and relevant. Compiling this information, we seek to determine what the youth vote was like in 2017, what may have held it back, and most importantly, how we can increase it in the future. This will grow the conversation around issues facing young people today in addition to the long-term planning of our City.
