DeWitt voters reflect on changing election climate
In this election, the participation of young voters is more important than ever. According to 2020 Census data, voters aged 18-24 had the lowest voter turnout of all ages with only 48% reporting they voted in the 2020 election. On the other hand, voters aged 65 and up had the highest voter turnout with 72% voting in the 2020 election. This Election Day, DeWitt voters are showing up in droves to have their voices heard. At DeWitt Middle School, voters were asked their thoughts on voting in modern times compared to their past experiences as well as the importance of voter participation.
