NextGen Climate has selected 12 majority-millennial precincts in Presidential and Senate battleground states to monitor over the course of the final few days of the election. These “Millennial Indicator Precincts” offer a glimpse into young voter enthusiasm in this election.

Each of the below precincts far exceeds state averages for “youth density,” meaning these Millennial Indicator Precincts are the best place to look on Election Day to see whether the youth vote is turning out at the levels that Hillary Clinton and climate champions down-ballot need to win.

Results from our Millennial Indicator Precincts are below.
Millennial Indicator ProjectBeyond these key millennial indicator precincts, you can read our take on youth voter turnout and support nationwide at this link.

Below you can see that turnout increased at on-campus early vote sites in Clark County, Nevada compared to 2012. While early vote is up ~12% in Nevada, you can see these youth-heavy areas are seeing an increase of almost 50%.
