How the Rising American Electorate Register and Vote

July 9, 2015

About a third of the Rising American Electorate (RAE) – unmarried women, people of color, young voters 18-35 (Millennials) — are not registered to vote.


Convenience of registration matters: The RAE is most likely to register at the DMV or by mail.


The majority of the RAE votes in person.


Unmarried women, one of the largest groups within the RAE – are the most likely to vote by mail.
