ANNOUNCEMENT: This event has been canceled due to inclement weather.
Popular lore attributes the results of the 2008 election to a successful effort by Democrats to mobilize youth voters in favor of Obama, leading to speculation that 2012 will turn on whether or not the Democratic Party can repeat its supposed 2008 success. Data on voter turnout and vote choice indicate otherwise. Voting patterns in 2008 were not noticeably different with respect to age than voting patterns in past elections, and young people remain the least likely age group to vote.
