Youth Knowledge of Election Laws

recent survey, analyzed by the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, showed that young voters generally are ill informed about election laws and rules but that those with no college experience are less aware of these statutes and regulations than their peers who had some college.  In particular:

  • Young voters were least informed about deadlines for voter registration, with 65 percent of non-college youth unsure about whether they needed to register at least a month before Election Day in their states compared with 58 percent of those with some college experience.
  • 51 percent of non-college youth were unsure about state voter ID laws compared with 39 percent of those with some college experience.
  • 57 percent of non-college youth were unsure about early voting laws compared with 48 percent of those with some college experience.
