If you were born after 1980, you’re a millennial. And you’re beginning to have impact as a voter. More and more millennials are becoming registered voters whose numbers are beginning to match those of the baby boomers so, in this election cycle, politicians better be paying attention. A growing number of millennials are registered as unaffiliated which presents opportunities to reach them. We hear about what those voters want and how to reach them.
