Millennial voters and social media key to presidential election

Millennials make up 31 percent of eligible voters, which is almost as many baby boomers as there are in the U.S.

For those under 30, more than one third say that social media has been their most helpful source during the campaign season. On election night, CBS News will be tracking what voters and candidates are saying throughout the night.

CBSN’s Elaine Quijano, who moderated a town hall discussion of 33 millennial voters, will be sharing tweets, photos and videos, as well as real-time data on trending topics.
