In a September tweet, State Rep. Charlie Geren tweeted, “Did you know less than half of Texans ages 18-24 are registered to vote?”

Is that a fact? Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team has the answer.

When Politifact contacted Garen to ask the source for the claim about young voters, he responded that he got the information from a Texas Tribune story, which relied on U.S. Census Bureau research.

Hear how Rep. Geren’s claim scored in the player above.
