According to my calculations, the 18-34 crowd from the 2005 mayoral primary was more like 12.2%. Similarly, in 2009, the 18-34′s were 13.1%. Since 2005 was probably the most similar primary to this one you can breakdown the ages of 18-34 year-olds then — and, since that was eight years ago, look at people who are now 26-42 who, back in 2005, would’ve been 18-34 and you’ll get 5,684 of the total 46,544 — which is 12.2%.

If Keystone Analytics thinks young voters will make up only 7% of the 2013 primary electorate, down 5 points from 12-13% in the last two elections, I’d like to hear their reasoning…
