Four Macomb County college students named to Student Advisory Task Force
Four college students from Macomb County have been selected to serve on the Michigan Department of State’s Collegiate Student Advisory Task Force for the 2024 election cycle.
The task force will determine and implement recommendations to improve voter education and engagement among young people on college and university campuses in the state, according to State Department officials.
According to a report by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University, Michigan voters ages 18-29 turned out at a rate of 37% in the 2022 midterm elections, higher than any other state CIRCLE analyzed, and above than the national average youth turnout rate of 23%, state officials said. Michigan was one of only four states where youth turnout was higher in 2022 than in 2018.
