The 2024 Election

A Turning Point in American History
Photo by

As the 2024 presidential election approaches, Americans are facing a critical choice that will shape the country’s future for generations to come. The election is scheduled for November 5th, 2024, where current President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are running against each other after securing their wins in the primary elections. This election is considered a rematch of the 2020 election. However, many significant events have happened since then which could affect voter participation.  

   In the 2020 presidential election, the Covid-19 Pandemic was a key issue, and in 2024 immigration and the economy are key issues. Furthermore, this election comes at a time when democracy is facing challenges inside and outside of our borders.  

   The 2020 election had the highest voterturnout in American history, while the 2024 election is expected to have a lower voter turnout, due to the unpopularity of the candidates and lack of better options. Also, the 2024 election has a more prominent role for third party candidates. 

   While the 2024 election polls are still being updated, the race is very close between Trump and Biden, with both Trump and Biden having slight leads in several polls, and polls can be misleading.  

   According to, polls show Trump has greater support among voters under 30, while Biden has greater support among voters over 45. According to, as of April 3rd, 2024, Trump and Biden are both tied at a 46% polling average. 

   The issues at stake in the election are significant, and the candidates in this election represent vastly different visions for America’s future. It is in the hands of the American people to decide who will be a better leader for our country. 

   President Biden promises to build the economy “from the bottom up”, while investing in infrastructure and manufacturing and expanding job opportunities. Americans are suffering the effects of inflation, especially food and gas. Trump has criticized Biden’s high government spending and called for lower taxes and fewer regulations. 

   Biden revoked some of Trump’s border/immigration policies, but a surge in immigration has received backlash from both the Democratic and Republican parties. Trump promises to bring back his immigration policies to secure the border. 

   Voting is a fundamental right and crucial aspect of U.S. democracy. Although many people who consider themselves Generation Z aren’t planning to vote, it is essential for them to vote so that they could have a say in their future and point the nation in the right direction. It is important for them to vote so that the people running the country can better represent their interests.
