Sunshine Hillyguys has been studying voter behavior for years. In her newest book with co-author John Holbein, Making Young Voters, she brings an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from economics, psychology, and child development, to shed new light on youth voter turnout dynamics.
This timely publication happens as Duke University increases its resources to encourage voter turnout. The Duke Votes campaign helps raise awareness about local resources available for registration and voting. Hillygus has helped emphasis what is at stake and why there is a turnout gap between youth and older adults.
