America's Electoral Future in 2020 and Beyond: The Coming Generational Transformation

This event has passed.

How will the country’s ongoing demographic and especially generational shifts affect the 2020 and future elections? What will our politics look like in the 2020’s and 2030’s as more of Generation Z and even younger generations enter the electorate and Millennials reach middle age? Will these generations’ current political attitudes persist or will they change with new phases of life? New research estimates the potentially profound effects of these different possibilities.

Join BPC, in partnership with the Brookings Institution, Center for American Progress, and Democracy Fund Voter Study Group for the release of the new States of Change report on America’s electoral future by Robert Griffin, William Frey, and Ruy Teixeira and reactions from Kristen Soltis Anderson, Tara McGowan, and Thomas Edsall.
