The state with the nation's youngest population should be leading the way in youth voting. Unfortunately, Utah's overall voting rates—including among Utahns between 18 and 29—are desperately lagging. Accordingly, the Hinckley Institute has launched a Youth Voting Initiative in order to combat this apathy. Each year we reach out to local high school students to engage them civically and empower the next generation of voters to be regular participants in the political process.
