Minnesota College Students Advocate for Economic Consideration in Gen Z Community

As the 2024 presidential election approaches, concerns about the economy continue to dominate voter discussions. According to a recent survey by Tufts University, young voters aged 18-34 are particularly concerned with the cost of living and inflation. This demographic, which includes members of Generation Z and some millennials, is an important voting bloc that will play a crucial role in determining the outcome of the election.

MPR News has been closely monitoring the views of young voters as they weigh their options ahead of the upcoming vote. In a recent article, we spoke to two Gen Z voters who represent different political perspectives: Will Pierce from Macalester College and Cory Hallada from St. Olaf College. Both students shared their thoughts on how economic factors were influencing their voting decisions this fall.

It’s clear that young voters are deeply engaged in the political process and are actively considering critical issues like the economy when making their choices. As such, it’s important for us to continue to provide reliable and trustworthy news coverage that helps them stay informed on these critical topics.
