Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death Friday helped prompt a surge in voter registration, according to voting groups. Since then, these organizations have seen a wave of engagement that carried through to National Voter Registration Day, which was Tuesday.
Just over 62% of those they helped register were female. Those who registered the most through Vote.org were between the ages of 25 and 34. Close to 25% were between the ages of 18 and 24.
Vote.org initially said they had over 254,000 registration verifications on Tuesday. They ended up conducting over 470,000 verifications, twice as much as they did two years ago, they later explained to CNBC.
