The millennial vote in 2016: What happened and what’s next? Part 2
How did the most diverse generation in U.S. history cast their ballots in 2016? And what does it mean?
On November 17, Governance Studies at Brookings and Tuft’s Tisch College’s Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) hosted an event focused on these questions. Experts presented data on youth turnout, campaign contact, and the issues deemed most important by this group. The panel discussed how millennial voters affected the outcome of the 2016 election—nationally and in key states—analyzed what the results suggest about youth electoral engagement beyond 2016, and examined the implications for the future of our political parties, public institutions, schools, and civic health.
After the session, panelists took audience questions.

President-elect Bolsonaro has embraced tough-on-crime measures that egregiously violate basic human rights and eviscerate the rule of law. Responding to Brazil’s 63,880 homicides in 2017, Bolsonaro calls for increasing protection for police officers who kill alleged criminals and arming citizens. He calls for further militarizing urban policing, reducing the age of criminal liability from 18 to 16, reinstating the death penalty, authorizing torture in interrogations and imprisoning more people... Brazil’s police are already notorious for being one of the world’s deadliest in the use of force. In many favelas, Brazil’s retired and current police officers operate illegal militias that extort and control local communities, murdering those who oppose them and engaging in warfare with Brazil’s highly-violent gangs and in social cleansing. Bolsonaro is simply threatening to turn the rest of the police into state-sanctioned thugs.
