New Report: Analysis of the 2008 CPS voting supplement

From Doug Hess of Project Vote- a review of the demographic changes of the eligible voting population that voted in the 2004 and 2008 elections. Key findings include:
  • Substantial increase in participation by African American, Latino and under-30 groups
  • Largest turnout gains were among minority youth, who turned out 5-10% more in 2008 over 2004
  • A drop in participation by white and older voters
