(03/23/22 7:50pm)

In Philadelphia public schools, over 8,000 students turn 18 every year. Out of those, only 15.2% are registered to vote. The Philadelphia City Commissioners Office has shown that 74% of those registered 18-year-olds voted in 2020 - a rate higher than Philadelphia’s overall turnout of 66%. New 18-year-olds often don’t understand the weight behind their vote due to a lack of education surrounding it.
