Happy Youth Vote Month!

Young Voter Strategies, a project of George Washington University, is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the voting age being lowered from 21 to 18, in March 2006, by funding several new projects designed to engage young people in the 2006 & 2008 elections. More news soon.

They write:
As I'm sure you know, in 2004 young voter turnout jumped 11 percentage points over 2000, nearly three times the
increase among the overall electorate. More than 20 million 18-29 year olds voted in 2004-an increase of 4.3 million.

Unrelated: There's a hot discussion going on on Daily Kos right now, where you are mentioned a few times, and not just by me.
