Jeddy Johnson SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Tuesday, November 6 marks election day for the people of the 24th district of New York.
In Onondaga County alone 367,073 people are registered to vote and of that number, 70 percent of them are active voters.
This year the county has seen the highest number of active voters — 287,261, but this is not an anomaly. Over the past six year, Onondaga County has seen upwards of 274,000 voters.
According to the 2015 Census, millennial outnumber baby boomers so candidates and supporters of both parties are looking towards the youth to influence votes.
But, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, millennial are not turning out to midterm elections like they do the presidential elections.
In 2010 and 2014 around around 25% of younger registered voters did not make their ways to the polls.
So far it is projected that John Katko will win by about 12 points. But, if millennial hit the poll on Nov. 6, that can sway the election to the right or to the left.
