 The SOTS' data suggests that "the largest group of new voters are some 18,952 voters between the ages of 18 and 29. Among voters aged 30-44, there are 10,334 newly registered voters. The age bracket of 45-59 gained 7,340 new voters while those aged 60 and over comprise 5,792 newly registered voters."
